Not all disputes have to be settled through litigation. Mediation is a less formal, less time-consuming and usually much less expensive way parties can resolve their disagreement through conversation and negotiation. Reed+Claymon offers mediation services in a number of areas, including health care, and disputes involving governmental entities. Sessions can range from a couple of hours to a full day, held in our offices or another location agreed upon by both parties. Our mediator serves as a neutral third-party who, based on experience in dispute resolution, helps the opposing parties exchange information, clarify their concerns and expectations, and ultimately reach a peaceful settlement on their own.
