Connecticut Civil Mediation Attorneys

What is Civil Mediation?

Civil mediation is an effective dispute resolution process without the need to go to court. Mediation is a voluntary process and will only take place if both parties agree. It is a confidential process where the terms of discussion are not disclosed to any party outside the mediation sessions. Civil mediation involves an independent third party – a mediator – who aids both sides to reach workable agreements.

What Are the Benefits of Civil Mediation?

While it may be tempting to sue, lawsuits are expensive, unpredictable, and time-consuming.

Civil mediation has many benefits over litigation including:

  • Civil mediation is a constructive dispute resolution process where you have direct control over the potential outcome, proactively and in advance of expending funds, energy, and the resources involved in litigation.
  • Civil mediation is now seen as the most practical and hands-on method of resolving civil or business disputes due to the fact that the conflict is constructively addressed by the parties PRIOR to adversarial gesturing.
  • Civil mediation is far less costly than the traditional litigation process. The cost savings of mediation go beyond the bottom line. Mediation not only saves money, but it also saves time and resources, and allows emotional energies to be expended in positive directions.
  • Civil mediation is an innovative method for resolving in-house conflict between employees, between an employee and management, or between businesses.
  • Civil mediation settlements have a consistently higher compliance rate because the parties have created their own mutual agreement.

Why Choose CT Mediation Center to Resolve My Dispute?

As experienced mediators and attorneys, we understand the adversarial legal system and know that “adversarial parties” can engage in a self-destructive litigation spiral, often with no easy way out.

In litigation, the best we can do is put forward the most persuasive argument in the hope that we prevail and the judge rules in our favor. Contrary to litigation, parties who utilize our mediation services, save time, finances, and emotional energy that are best spent on growth and development. Parties who employ our mediation firm retain control of the process. Unlike litigation where the court and attorneys control the process of resolving the conflict, in mediation, a neutral mediator controls the process constructively, while enabling the parties to brainstorm, create possible solutions, and narrow the conflict gap and reach workable agreements. The decision-making process developed in our mediation sessions serves as a model to prevent further conflict and enable conflict resolution beyond the mediation process.
