In the context of a civil case pending in court, Mediation is a process in which a neutral mediator leads a conference meeting in which the attorneys and the parties to the litigation meet to analyze their case and the case of their adversary and work collaboratively to negotiate a settlement or resolution of the case. Mediation allows the parties to reach a consensual settlement and avoid the cost and uncertainty of litigation. The mediator does not decide the case or dictate a settlement. The mediator is merely a facilitator to help the parties reach a compromise. The parties control the outcome. They can choose to either negotiate a settlement or not agree and continue to litigate to trial.

Mediation is a confidential, informal, collaborative, non-adversarial process intended to help disputing parties reach a mutually acceptable resolution. Benefits of mediation include: a neutral and private forum, flexibility, speed in resolving the matter and savings from avoiding a trial. The mediation conference allows the parties to focus on their respective positions and talk to each other in a civil fashion to achieve a settlement agreement. Dempsey Legal Solutions offers mediator services for Florida Appellate, Circuit Civil and County Court cases as well as Federal Court civil cases.
