How Do I Choose A Qualified Mediator In Denton County?
Usually, your lawyer will select a qualified mediator. The most important quality you want in a mediator is someone who understands conflict. You want someone that can gather information from the two parties, figure out what the most important things are to each, and like putting together a puzzle, figure out how to make those positions fit together.
You need someone with a lot of patients and who understands the kind of case you have. Mediators with experience tend to be better at communicating with the parties about their interests, explaining what they’re up against and what a trial will look like for them, which is very helpful.
You’re looking for someone with experience and a reputation for resolving your type of case. With my own practice, I have people we have used that are good, so I use them repeatedly. Their reputation matters a lot within the legal community.
