The Advantage of Hiring an Attorney as a Mediator

In 2006 the requirement to be an attorney to perform mediation services was eliminated. Although, there are advantages to having varied background experiences in those performing mediation services, there is a great advantage to hiring an attorney to mediate your dispute.  A mediator cannot give legal advice in mediation because it is the mediator’s job to remain neutral.  However, a mediator, who has the legal education and experience of an attorney, will know the proper questions to facilitate, assist and empower each party to identify and distinguish between the legal issues and non-legal (often emotional) issues that hamper the ability to reach a solution; foster joint problem-solving and explore alternative settlement options.

Mediation is a confidential meeting with a third party neutral person who facilitates dispute resolution. Basically, a trained neutral third party assists in the negotiation and dispute resolution. The mediator does not act as a judge or legal advisor. The mediator assists in identifying issues and solutions.

The neutral third party (mediator) helps to identify issues and discuss solutions that a court is not at liberty to grant in a common legal dispute. In mediation, the parties control the outcome. The parties exercise their self determination in resolving a matter versus having a judge or jury in a courtroom arena make the decision.
