Why mediate?

What is Mediation and why mediate?
Mediation is a prudent and efficient method of resolving disputes, which eliminates uncertainty and lowers the cost of litigation. The most important reason to mediate is that instead of a third party whom you canot control, such as a judge or arbitrator, deciding your case, you will resolve the matter in a manner satisfactory to you. No mediator has the power to issue a decision: he or she can only help the parties reach a decision that they can both accept.
