You can solve many civil cases without the need for a judge or official courtroom setting. Tyler mediation services can help you and your clients save both time and money during the length of their case. By working with a third-party mediator, your clients can reach an agreement with the opposing party in a calm and civil manner. Hiring a mediator for your client is the best way to foster communication and help both sides reach an agreeable compromise.
How Mediation Works
A mediator is a fully qualified lawyer who’s knowledgeable in the laws your client’s case deals with. This knowledge and expertise allow them to help your clients reach an agreement that stays true to the laws and regulations of Texas. A mediator will meet with both sides, listening to the concerns and desires of each. They’ll then bring everyone together to foster communication and encourage your clients to reach their own conclusions. If needed, a mediator can suggest possible solutions. However, the emphasis is on helping your clients determine what is best for them, given the situation.
Although the mediator is not a judge, the agreement reached during the mediation process is held to the same legal standards as if it were reached in a courtroom. Whatever your clients decide upon, it can be legally enforced. In many civil cases, a judge will even recommend mediation as opposed to an official hearing to save everyone time and money.
When to Use Tyler Mediation Services
Mediation can be a great benefit in many civil cases. A mediator helps two parties that are on equal footing find common ground. Examples of cases where a mediator can be beneficial include:
- Personal Injury Claims
- Breach of Contract Claims
- Equitable Claims
- Landlord/Tenant Disputes
When Not to Use Mediation
Mediation can be a powerful communication tool, but it is not always the best option for your clients. Mediation relies on both parties having equal power and status, allowing them to confidently express their situation and desires. In certain cases, however, this is not always true. Sometimes a court hearing is the best option for your client, especially if there is a history of abuse or threats between the two parties. Being in a formal court setting with an official judge can help clients who are intimidated by the opposing party feel more comfortable fighting for what they deserve.
