Los Angeles Mediation Attorney

Mr. Charlton is also a Professional Mediator

What is Mediation?

Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process in which the parties agree to communicate and negotiate in good faith. Mediation offers a forum to discuss the issues and options for resolution and create a solution that works for you. While the process is informal and conducted in an open atmosphere, a trained, neutral mediator helps work through stumbling blocks and overcome communication barriers.

Participants appreciate the process because they are treated with dignity and respect. The parties, not the mediator, control the outcome, which may include a written memorandum prepared by the mediator.

Why mediation versus litigation?

Litigation is an adversarial and delayed process that destroys relationships and permits a judge or jury to impose a final win-lose decision.

Mediation, in contrast, is much more economical and efficient than going to court, especially since the parties split the cost of mediation. Legal representation is encouraged, but not required, as is consultation, with a variety of other experts if the parties so choose. All the parties and their representatives work together for a fair solution.

Mediation can be used at any stage of a dispute, before or after a suit has been filed. Many courts refer cases to mediation because of its high success rate - largely because the parties understand their case and the nuances of their relationship better than anyone else.

A vast majority of those who participate in mediation are satisfied with the process, especially since it is less time consuming and less expensive than traditional venues, and most cases are successfully resolved.

Regardless of the reason for choosing mediation, research demonstrates that people prefer mediation to all other dispute resolution methods.
