Mediation in San Diego

As a leading San Diego employment attorney, John P. Martin, Attorney at Law, is committed to aiding parties through this process, advocating on their behalf to secure their rightful position and compensation.

A Strategic Alternative to Litigation

Mediation, an alternative dispute resolution method, allows disputing parties to negotiate an agreeable resolution guided by a neutral third party – the mediator. 

The mediator is not there to make decisions or judgments; instead, they facilitate the negotiation process, ensuring that it is productive and that all parties are heard. Unlike a judge or an arbitrator, the mediator doesn’t impose a solution but aids the disputing parties to reach a mutually beneficial agreement. 

As an example: Jane, a Silicon Valley software engineer, believed she was overlooked for a promotion due to her gender. She saw a pattern of her company favoring less experienced male colleagues. When her concerns remained unresolved internally, she considered suing for gender discrimination. 

However, considering the costs, time, potential reputation damage, and stress linked to litigation, Jane chose mediation instead. The company also saw the benefit of avoiding a lawsuit and agreed to mediation. A neutral mediator facilitated a dialogue between Jane and the company. Ultimately, this process led to a mutually agreed resolution.
