– Mediation Versus the Traditional Legal System

Lawyers will tell you that 95% of cases are settled “on the court house steps” and only 5% proceed to trial. That would be correct. However, what they may fail to tell you is that you will likely be in the court several times filing court documents such as statements of claim, applications, motions, affidavits, counter-affidavits, undertakings and getting interim court orders before trial even begins. Numerous discussions would occur between lawyers, their clients and back again. Everything is duplicated by each party. In mediation there is no duplication of documentation, motions, affidavits or court orders. Communication is with the mediator and the two parties. The primary objective is to settle not build a case.
