Are you mediating your legal dispute? Here are some things that will keep your mediator happy:
• Remember - you are trying to settle your case – not start the legal equivalent of World War III. This is not the time for personal attacks, derogatory comments, etc.
• Neither side will get everything that he/she wants. This includes you! Compromise is the tone of the day.
• Prior to the mediation, list which issues/items are most important to you. If your list includes everything, then see #2 above.
