Mediation Can Help Resolve Disputes Between Parties Earlier
Mediation is a more economical and less intimidating process for dispute resolution than the typical adversarial approach. Mediation can occur quickly, often in a matter of weeks or months, rather than a lawsuit, which can drag on for years. The time savings also means saving money on attorney fees and litigation expenses. More importantly, mediation is an opportunity to resolve a dispute fairly and move on with your life and your business.
Scott Fegley is a trained mediator approved by the Bucks County Bar Association for mediation of civil disputes involving business, employment and personal injury cases. Mr. Fegley’s experience as a mediator, a federal arbitrator, and his twelve years as a Township Supervisor in the Yardley, PA area give him a unique perspective on thinking outside the box and helping parties in dispute find common ground. In mediation, Mr. Fegley does not take sides, but looks objectively for ways to enable the parties themselves to bridge the gap between them. Although mediation itself is non-binding, Mr. Fegley will reduce agreements reached through mediation to writing which, when signed, become enforceable settlement agreements.
Mr. Fegley emphasizes that parties coming to mediation must come with a willingness to compromise. No one gets everything they want by way of mediation. If parties are entrenched and unwilling to consider alternative ideas, they should prepare themselves for the duration of a lawsuit and judicial resolution.
