"According to a study by the National Center for State Courts, the average civil trial costs $45,000 to $180,000. It takes anywhere from 2 to over 5 years from beginning to end.
"The average Mediation resolves within a few weeks and costs a few hundred to a couple of thousand dollars. AND the parties get to control the outcome 100%."
"There really is no comparison -- that's why I do what I do."
-- Tom Ford, Certified Mediator
