Welcome to MediationJD ~ Consider

Beware: What Really
Happens in Court?
Here's the truth
about Lawyer Court. The plaintiff and defendant hire lawyers to
represent them. Both lawyers plead their cases. The Judge makes a
decision. You have to honor it! There is no guarantee that
you will be the 'winner'. You may jeopardize personal and
business relationships including your own family and friends. And,
if you lose, you may have to pay the other party's lawyer fees. The
courtroom is not always fair. If you don't have the money
to hire the 'best experienced lawyer' most likely you may lose. Most
people walk away from lawyer court very dissatisfied. Why?
Court is very stressful and lawyers are good at spinning
the truth. Good News! There
is a legal out-of-court
settlement process that most people don't know about. Most
dispute can be resolved without a lawyer or going to court through
Mediation 'the little known' SECRET.
Mediation, "extrajudicial dispute
resolution" (EDR) or "alternative dispute
resolution " (ADR), also known as "appropriate dispute
resolution", aims to assist two (or more) disputants in
reaching an agreement. Whether an agreement results or not, and the
content of that agreement (if any) the parties themselves determine
— rather than accepting something imposed by a third party. The
disputes may involve (as parties) states, organizations,
communities, individuals or other representatives with a vested
interest in the outcome. Mediation is a discipline in its own right,
in a situation where people are trapped in a conflict, is their free
Hon’ble Mr. Justice Warren E. Burger, Former Supreme
Court Chief Justice of United States: The notion that most people want black-robed judges,
well-dressed lawyers, and fine paneled courtrooms as the setting to
resolve their dispute is not correct. People with problems, like
people with pains, want relief, and they want it as quickly and
inexpensively as possible.
Mr. Justice R.
C. Lahoti, Former Supreme
Court Chief Justice of India : Litigation does not always lead to a satisfactory result. It
is expensive in terms of time and money. A case won or lost in a
court of law does not change the mindset of the litigants who
continue to be adversaries and go on fighting in appeals after
appeals. Alternate dispute resolution systems enable the change in
mental approach of the parties.
Hon’ble Mr. Justice James G. Exum Jr., Supreme Court
Chief Justice, North Carolina, USA : The time has clearly come for lawyers to begin to emphasize
their role as mediators, conciliators, and peacemakers - as
counselors for what is right, not merely advocates for what is
legally possible. Lawyers must begin to take advantage of
alternatives to litigation for dispute resolution. ... Lawyers need
to remind themselves that the courtroom is often not a place
conducive to peacemaking or conflict healing, yet peacemaking and
conflict healing are first obligations of our profession.
Why Mediation Now?
Mediation is a
sleeping giant. Recent surge in mediation's popularity signifies a
dramatic shift in the practice of law. Public and Private Entities
and Attorneys are now using professional neutrals to facilitate
settlement negotiations for litigated cases. In the past, settlement
efforts in the litigation arena have been limited to voluntary or
mandatory settlement conferences with sitting or retired judges in
which the focus is almost exclusively on the judge's case
evaluation. As increasing numbers of courts are requiring parties to
mediate in order to accommodate an overburdened legal system, there
is a growing demand for professionals who, in addition to being able
to evaluate a case, can also facilitate negotiations between
adversarial parties to reach innovative solutions. Mediation is on
