Providing Skilled Mediation Services For Macon Residents

The idea of resolving conflicts by trial was a big improvement over going to war with your neighbor. But courtrooms today are overloaded, attorney time is expensive, and many disputants do not relish turning over serious issues to an overworked judge who may not understand the case. For all these reasons, we turn to mediation today to resolve legal disputes.

The very idea of working out serious issues in broad daylight, relying on cookie-cutter solutions makes people wonder: Isn't there a better way?

Providing A Better Approach To Conflict Resolution Through Mediation

People in Macon and Perry know from experience that mediation is preferable to courtroom litigation, that it is a calmer environment, that it is less costly, less bureaucratic and less risky than going to trial.

Why Choose Mediation?

Mediation has one other powerful advantage. It allows parties in dispute to retain control of the eventual outcome. There is no judge or jury to play to — there is just the reasoned discussion between the parties in dispute. It is nonbinding, so if you don't like the outcome, you can walk away from it.

When it works well, which is usually, mediation also produces finality. Both claimant and defendant can close the book on that particular problem. As one insurance lawyer described it, "A closed file is a good file."
