Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution process where the parties employ a neutral mediator to help the parties reach an amicable settlement of their dispute.
A mediation outcome is never binding unless the parties agree upon the outcome. However, mediation can be a mandatory pre-trial step in dispute resolution process, if the parties agreed to mediate in their contract, or if the court orders the parties to participate in a mediation.
Many courts have their own mediation programs. There are also several private companies that specialize in offering mediation services, such as Henning Mediation and Arbitration Service, and Bay Mediation & Arbitration Service. There are also numerous attorneys in private practice who are excellent mediators.
