  • Arbitration is a way of cutting down the time length of the Civil Litigation Process

  • Mediation is when both sides try to meet with a third party neutral in order to resolve issues
  • A Mediators only role is to bring the parties together to discuss issues of the case, resolve¬†differences independently, and come to a reasonably satisfying, calm resolution
