Overview

Frustration with lawyers,the debilitating time and expense court proceedings,and the complicated litigation that seems to be attached to any dispute,have made the American legal system a nightmare. Now,finally,Mediate,Don't Litigate offers an alternative. It explains how to use the more than 300 public alternative dispute resolution centers that operate throughout the United States. Tens of thousands of people have already turned to them for help in handling such disputes involving consumer versus merchant,landlord versus tenant,employer versus employee,and business versus business. Mediation is quick (the average time from intake to resolution is about twenty-one days,with most cases requiring only one two-hour hearing); private (all discussion is confidential); inexpensive (free or at nominal cost since lawyers are not needed); fair (because solutions are tailored to individual needs rather than dictated by legal precedent); and successful. Peter Lovenheim,an attorney,journalist,and certified mediator,explains how mediation works and how best to exploit it,and offers a special chapter on how to train and qualify to become a Certified Public Mediator. The book concludes with the most up-to-date,comprehensive listing of mediation services in the country.
