Civil mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution. It relies on the assistance of a neutral third-party professional who uses conflict resolution skills to help the parties improve their communication and reach an amicable decision that both parties are satisfied with. Because cases that are successfully mediated often decrease legal expenses, improve the relationship between the parties and resolve a case more quickly, Harry J. Ross Attorney at Law in Boca Raton, Florida often recommends mediating cases. Our firm handles mediation of all types of civil cases.
In mediation, the mediator is not the decision maker. Mediation is a voluntary process. The parties work together to come to a peaceful resolution. The mediator’s role is to help the parties reach an agreement by discussing the issues and negotiating the terms of an agreement. Mediation often helps resolve tension between the parties that is often caused by litigation. Because the parties are able to provide input into the process and the final agreement, they are more likely to be satisfied with the results and adhere to the agreement than if the case is decided by a judge or jury. Mediation also allows the parties to avoid unpredictable outcomes that may arise when someone else makes the decision about the dispute.

• Real property disputes
• Contract disputes
• Purchase agreement disputes
