Focus of Civil Law Services
When engaging in mediation what should your main focus be on? We believe the parties should be focused on eliminating the conflict without litigation delay. In do so it spares the parties from the ramifications of anguish and turmoil brought about by conflict.
Mediation offers parties the opportunity to resolve disputes in a quick and efficient manner. Litigation on the other hand, for the most part, will not be quick or efficient.
Considering that litigation has been the standard for dispute resolution, it's easy to fall into the trap of wanting your day in court. Unfortunately, this emotionally charged stance is contrary to the court's acceptance and promotion of mediation. For what it's worth one's day in court is a guided process of painting a picture based upon facts which has no concern about your emotional story. Essentially, your story never gets told. The toll on your health will never be addressed. So why want a day in court?
Is it coincidence that "medication" and "mediation" start with the prefix "medi"? Most likely not. For certain healing cannot occur if litigation is still in progress. Why wait to be ordered by the court to engage mediation? Why not be proactive and embrace mediation?
Should you find yourself with a dispute then ask yourself a few questions before demanding litigation. How much toll can my health absorb? What is the value of lost health and happiness that can't be replaced? How will you feel to know that such toll will never be addressed? After pondering these questions it should be clear that mediation is the clear choice for handling a dispute.
