Having the option of avoiding traditional litigation is attractive to many Scottsdale residents. Most people have heard of mediation and that it can replace going to court, but they may not understand how it works. Knowing the basics of the process could help them determine whether this method of alternative dispute resolution could help them end their dispute -- whether it's with a business, a future ex-spouse or a business partner.
Most Scottsdale residents would cringe at the thought of having to go to court. Not only is it a daunting experience, but it is also time-consuming and expensive. For this reason, mediation is an attractive alternative for resolving any number of disputes, including those in the area of employment law.
Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to go through life without some confrontations and disputes. Most of them you resolve yourself with the other person. However, some of your disputes require more formal help. Your first thought may be to file a lawsuit in a civil court here in Scottsdale, but that might not be necessary. You could try an alternative method of dispute resolution such as mediation and maintain control over the outcome.
The thought of going to court in order to resolve an issue with a fellow Scottsdale small business may not be appealing. The time, expense and nearly assured destruction of the relationship between the parties makes litigation an unwanted situation for everyone involved. Mediation could provide a way to avoid this eventuality and allow the parties to salvage their working relationship if so desired.
