Be the One to Suggest Mediation
Suggesting mediation is not a sign of weakness.  Mediation is the most effective way to settle a case that can be settled.   If you're thinking about mediation for your client's case but are afraid it will send a signal of weakness or show lack of confidence, remember, many court rules require mediation, and early mediation, before an ADR deadline, can save your client significant expense.  Consider a confidential, complimentary consultation with Kathleen Wareham to evaluate your case for mediation and plan how and when to get the parties to the table.  Contact Ms. Wareham
