Mediation is the attempt to settle a legal dispute through the active participation of a third party (mediator) who works to find points of agreement and help those in conflict agree on a resolution of their dispute. The goal of the mediator is to obtain an agreement between the parties and not to provide them with legal advise or counsel. Therefore, individuals participating in mediation are often represented by independent counsel so that they understand their rights and obligations prior to reaching a binding agreement. Mediation differs from arbitration in which the third party (arbitrator)
acts as a decision maker much like a judge but in an out-of-court and less formal setting. Mediation has become very common in trying to resolve issues in domestic relations disputes such as property division, child custody, child support and spousal support. Mediation also has become more frequent in probate, contract, personal injury and civil damage cases. Professional mediators and lawyers charge fees to participate in mediation, but the financial cost is frequently far less than fighting the matter out in court. Mediation may also achieve early settlement and a more satisfying result to the
parties who have reached a mutually acceptable resolution of their dispute rather than having a result imposed on them by a judge. Vincent E. Nelson is a skilled negotiator who is often retained to represent, and provide legal advice, to individuals as they are participating in mediation. As a mediator himself, he has also successfully assisted many individuals reach a fair and timely resolution of their dispute.
