For better or worse, conflict is part of the human condition and the dreaded lawsuit or litigation is the manner we, as a society, have chosen to resolve many conflicts. We’re all aware of the horror stories about the costs and stresses of litigation, the time involved, the uncertainty, and the lack of control over the end result. It doesn’t have to be this way. If you find yourself confronted by the ominous prospect of a lengthy, expensive, and contentious lawsuit, consider mediation, the process by which parties to a dispute negotiate a final resolution with the assistance of a neutral, third-party, a mediator. The benefits of using mediators in Eagle County, CO to settle a dispute to settle a dispute are clear – it’s cheaper and faster than traditional litigation for all concerned, offers greater control over the final result, and affords the parties a sense of finality not often achieved through litigation
It is often said that the best negotiation results in both parties walking away unsatisfied. While there is some truth to this sentiment – as we all learned as kindergartners, peaceful coexistence requires a bit of give and take on everybody’s part – Melissa Decker, one of the most experienced mediators in Eagle, Summit, Lake and Clear Creek Counties Colorado, believes mediation can and should be more than that.
