Mediation In Georgia: A Cost-Effective Strategy For Resolving Conflicts
Mediation offers parties an alternative method for resolving conflicts without the cost and expense associated with a trial. When an experienced attorney facilitates, parties can walk away from conflict with effective solutions. At Joseph D. Weathers, PC, I have been serving clients in Georgia out of my Moultrie office for over 30 years. I offer mediation services for clients in Colquitt County and beyond and can help parties work together to create resolution strategies.
What Is Mediation?
In mediation, a neutral third party (i.e. the mediator) helps both parties discuss and assess the conflicts between them. An experienced mediator will flush out both sides of the story so that everyone involved understands the underlying issues. The mediator will encourage and help both parties generate ideas to resolve the issues.
Mediation is common in family law matters, but can also be utilized as an alternative to trial in just about any civil law matter, including:
- Business disputes
- Disagreements over contracts
- Employment law disputes
- Landlord and tenant disagreements
As long as both parties agree to mediation, just about any case can be effectively resolved through the mediation process.
The mediator does not decide the case for the parties, but rather, helps both parties brainstorm ideas and negotiate terms to reach a settlement. When parties each have a say in how the case is resolved, they are more likely to implement and follow the agreement that gets reached during the mediation process.
