Take Control

practice-1Most civil cases filed in Florida will be mediated by court order or by agreement at some stage in the litigation. In fact, Chapter 44 of the Florida statutes generally addresses mediations and provides that except in certain limited circumstances, a Court must upon the request of a party, refer to mediation any filed civil action for monetary damages. Additionally, pre-suit mediation may be required by statute or by an underlying agreement, or the parties may independently and voluntarily decide they want to submit their dispute to pre-suit mediation. Again, mediation may occur pre-suit, or after the lawsuit is filed.

The Mediation Process

Mediation is a facilitated negotiation process where a skilled third party neutral assists the parties to reach an acceptable resolution by putting them in control and affording them the opportunity to determine the outcome.
