Not every legal dispute has to be resolved by litigation. In some cases, the involved parties or the court may elect to use mediation. As an alternative dispute resolution method, mediation is often less stressful than litigation; in nearly all cases, it is less costly.
One of the most important reasons to consider mediation is not just the financial savings. In most cases, it also gives you more control over the process as well as the outcome. Rather than having a judge decide your case, the involved parties work with an independent third party mediator and come up with a satisfactory resolution. Our office has helped people who are involved in major contract disputes, real estate disputes, and other civil disputes navigate a resolution without having to go to court.
Most people find this process far less stressful, and in many cases, less time consuming than the litigation process.
If you are less concerned with who is at fault, and more interested in an outcome that suits everyone, we can help. We have successfully helped individuals and business owners in McHenry, Boone, Winnebago and Cook counties in Northern Illinois successfully resolve a range of matters using the mediation process.
