“Mediation Wins! It’s Cheaper and Works Better!”

Questions To Ask Your Mediator

1. Are you certified as a Mediator by the Virginia Supreme Court? If not, this person is not a “real” Mediator.

2. How many years of experience do you have as a Mediator? Being a Mediator is not the same thing as being a Lawyer. Lawyer years alone don’t count.

3. What is your Mediation Style? If they don’t know what you are talking about, they are not “real”.

4. Do you have any special training or experience in the issues to be mediated? This is especially important in Family Law cases which require special sensitivity and knowledge.

5. What is your experience in drafting Mediated Agreements? The written result is crucial in creating a binding legal contract.

Look for certification, experience, and quality!
And remember that Mediation beats Litigation!
