Mediation & Avoiding the Courtroom

Legal Mediation & Alternatives to Litigation in the Bay Area

At Mitchell Law Firm, we know that meeting our clients' objectives by recovering maximum value is the number one goal in every personal injury case. In some instances, this means standing up for the rights of accident victims at trial, against insurance companies that are unwilling to provide the necessary compensation. Many of our cases, however, are successfully settled without going to trial. Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution that can help our clients avoid the costs of the courtroom, while serving to obtain recoveries that meet their goals.

The team at Mitchell Law Firm has extensive experience in personal injury mediation and works hard to settle cases out of court when possible. Our preparation and willingness to try cases, and our successful record in injury claims, has earned us respect from insurance companies, their adjusters and their defense lawyers.

Benefits of Mediation

Mediation provides attorneys from both sides with the opportunity to meet in person, discuss all aspects of a case and work toward a fair settlement. A mediator is an unbiased third-party who is typically a former judge or attorney that listens to both sides. He or she will attempt to guide both sides to reach a conclusion that is mutually agreeable. Unlike in arbitration, the counsel of a mediator is not binding.

When mediation works, it can provide a fair result for both parties, while sparing clients a good amount of money and grief that can come with trial. We always try to resolve our clients' cases in the way that is most beneficial. Sometimes that can be done through mediation. Given our trial preparation and effective strategies, our lawyers are prepared to go to trial when mediation is not effective.
