While disputes are inevitable, not every single disagreement has to be settled in court. In fact most are not – over 98% of all civil cases settle before reaching trial. Not only is the court system overcrowded, but even parties who are successful in court will rarely recoup all of their legal costs, not to mention the time and energy that they have already spent on their fight.
Instead, most cases today settle at mediation. Not only is it mandatory for many cases in the Windsor region as an attempt at resolving the matter before trial, but mediation is often a cost-effective way to have all parties heard with a guide helping them reach a fair resolution. Mediation is not a court, and a mediator cannot force the parties to reach a resolution. Rather, by allowing them to express their positions in a safe environment, a mediator can show both sides how reasonable it would be to resolve the matter sooner rather than later.
