Mediation is an informal process in which a neutral third party assists the opposing parties to reach a voluntary, negotiated resolution of the dispute. Mediation gives the parties the opportunity to discuss the issues raised in the dispute, clear up misunderstandings, determine the underlying interests or concerns, find areas of agreement and, ultimately, to incorporate those areas of agreements into resolutions. A mediator does not impose a decision on the parties. Instead, the mediator helps the parties to agree on a mutually acceptable resolution. The mediation process is strictly confidential. With nearly 20 years of civil litigation experience, James H. McFerrin brings a wealth of practical experience to the table as a mediator and welcomes the opportunity to discuss serving as the mediator for your case.
