Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), is a way of resolving disputes between two or more parties. The mediator assists the parties to their own settlement. In some cases, mediators may express a view on what might be a fair or reasonable settlement, generally where all the parties agree that the mediator may do so.
In Small Claims civil actions, Racine County’s Judges require mediation to be attempted prior to all court trials.
