MEDIATION: A SMART AND EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE TO LITIGATION
Peter J. Lesser brings over thirty years of broad litigation experience, extensive academic training and hands-on experience in mediation -- and a fair dose of common sense -- to the growing field of alternative dispute resolution.
As a Mediator, Peter helps individuals, businesses and their attorneys resolve their lawsuits andpre-litigation disputes by providing a comfortable and confidential environment in which the parties can negotiate a binding, mutually-acceptable resolution of their case. Mediation is a smart and effective process because it gives the parties an active role in defining the real issues in dispute.Mediation puts the decision-making in their hands – while avoiding the financial and emotional costs, delays, and inherent uncertainties of the litigation process. Peter helps achieve resolution by being a good listener, a probing questioner of all parties' positions, and an active, creative and persistent consensus builder.
