Benefits of Out-of-Court Settlement over Litigation
When balancing processing of litigation over mediation, consider:
- high cost of cxpert testimony for trial
- potential adverse rulings by the trial judge
- time and legal fees expended to conduct a trial and, potentially, to process an appeal
- uncertain results secured through trial and appeal
If a negotiated settlement presents an opportunity for reasonable disposition of contested issues in a civil case, mediation could offer the best option for adversaries in the dispute. If mediation fails, the adversary parties will have preserved their right to try their case in court to pursue a verdict and judgment to bring the case to conclusion.
Using mediation as an avenue to avoid the uncertainties of trial of a civil case, adversaries in the litigation can access Frank Ray’s more than four decades of trial experience. This trial experience has enabled Frank to serve as a mediator who can offer measured guidance to adversaries and their counsel and achieve settlement of their case.
