Sometimes counsel needs a mediator who is an interventionist and who will make it clear to the parties which side of the issue he or she supports and will very persuasively try to get one or the other lawyers to go there. Sometimes, counsel, is very concerned as to how their clients will be handled at the mediation and they require a mediator who can establish empathy with people and guide them through the process. A lawyer who uses mediators regularly and often, sometimes express the view that it should be easier to find mediators and have them qualified. While it might be a good idea to have mediators regulated and standards set, probably the marketplace has a way of sorting that all out. If someone is not a good mediator, word gets around quite quickly. It has been said that we are mediating too much. This is a two-pronged argument.

Sometimes, while the lawsuit is making its way to the courthouse, we mediate more than once.

If a personal injury case is mediated at a time when each disputant has all they need to make educated decisions about the case, there is a 99 percent chance that the case will settle. If a private mediation fails, it is because one of the parties to the process has not prepared properly. Either they do not have sufficient information, or they do not have a thorough understanding of the case. The case comes to mediation too soon and fails. It is unusual for those kinds of cases to be mediated a second time and they will ultimately resolve. In mediation, timing is everything. The lesson is hold the mediation at the right time all other things being equal the case will settle. Make sure your opponent has all of the productions well in advance of the session. Last minute document delivery is a recipe for failure. Mediating should prevail much in the sense that too few cases are being tried. For us, these questions are easily answered.
