Mediation is an informal and confidential way for parties to resolve their disputes with the help of a neutral third party — a mediator. Unlike litigation, which can be expensive, time consuming and unpredictable, mediation brings parties together in an environment where they can quickly and efficiently find a solution.


In mediation, the parties are in charge of the process and the outcome. The final solution is mutually agreed upon – a win-win. Mediators are trained to remain neutral, hearing both sides and helping parties reach a mutually beneficial resolution. In litigation, a judge has the final say and results can be unpredictable.


Anything said in mediation is private and confidential and cannot be used in court, nor can the mediator be forced to testify. Court files are usually public and court hearings are usually open.

Low Risk

A court proceeding can be fraught with risk. You lose control over the process and hand it over to lawyers, clerks, and judges. Mediation lets you participate in shaping the outcome. If you do not reach an acceptable resolution in mediation, you can always go to court later.


COVID-19 has created a great deal of uncertainty. Most courts are not in operation, causing months and sometimes years of delays. You do not have to file a case in court in order to mediate.  An online mediation session can be set up quickly, at a time that's convenient for you.    

Having your say

A mediator is trained to let you have your say on the matter in question. What really happened? How are the parties affected? In mediation both parties can take the time to explain their position without being tripped up in complicated legal jargon. Judges have crowded dockets – especially now – and many court hearings last five minutes or less before the gavel comes down.


Mediation is generally far less expensive than court processes and avoids filing fees, hiring a lawyer, taking time off work, etc. You can represent yourself. Mediation is generally billed on an hourly basis, and both parties divide the cost in half.   


Mediation takes place online virtually, allowing you the freedom to mediate from the comfort of your home or office and at the time that works best for the parties – including nights and weekends. Often, a mediated agreement will be drafted on the screen and signed before the mediation is over!

Specific performance

In court, usually all a judge can do is award monetary damages. Sometimes you want a different type of resolution – a job finished, or property returned. In mediation, the parties can agree to get things done – not just quibble over money.
