At Burch & Cracchiolo, our Mediation Attorney in Phoenix is dedicated to helping individuals and businesses resolve conflicts and disputes through alternative dispute resolution methods, specifically mediation. Our team of experienced mediators are skilled in facilitating communication and negotiation between parties in order to reach a mutually satisfactory resolution.

Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process in which a neutral third party, the mediator, helps parties involved in a dispute come to an agreement without the need for a formal court trial. The mediator does not make decisions for the parties, but rather helps them explore their options and come to a mutually acceptable resolution on their own.

Why Use Mediation?

  • Mediation costs a lot less than litigation. Financially speaking, litigation will eat up a lot of your money. Attorney and court fees can eat up a substantial chunk of your savings. Mediation is a more cost-effective alternative.

  • You’re more in control. During litigation, a judge will hear both sides of the case. The judge decides on issues as he or she deems fair. That can be subjective and it can lead to decisions with which you may not necessarily agree. With a mediation attorney in Phoenix, you and the other party are having a formal discussion about the issues that come up. The mediator is there to help discussions flow more smoothly and to facilitate a conversation.

  • Non-binding. With mediation, the solutions that the mediator suggests are just that —suggestions. The decisions that happen during the discussion are non-binding. Although, be warned that if either party crosses a line set forth during mediation, it can go on to litigation.

  • Backlog in the Courts. The reality with the U.S. judicial system is that courts always have something on the docket. They are often backlogged due to the large number of cases before them. Setting a court date could mean you won’t see even the beginning of a resolution until months down the road. That’s a lot of time, money, and emotion spent waiting for a court date. The system is also plagued by parties rescheduling and postponing those dates. Therefore, it can easily become an expensive, bureaucratic mess. Mediation is relatively faster. This is because you and the other party schedule when you want to meet.

  • Better results. Both parties feel like they have contributed to a discussion and have heard each other out. As such, they are more likely to follow the decisions made during mediation than during the adversarial litigation process. There is no winner or loser during mediation, only a middle ground. Because both parties must agree on the results.
