Mediation, in Particular Early Mediation Works
Early mediation is very effective when you plan for success. Success in mediation is all about solving a problem, where success at trial is winning the war.
Solving a problem, requires far less information and is typically obtained in less time than turning every stone in preparation for trial.
Planning for success is straightforward. Both sides share their claims and counter claims along with their supporting evidence. Then the parties work towards targeted discovery limited to just the information necessary to make a decision.
Successful planning results in a dispute that is resolved, quickly.

Mr. Knight served as an arbitrator on a construction case. All parties appreciated his willingness to accommodated a very difficult schedule with tight time lines and to conduct the arbitration at the project site. His background and construction knowledge allowed him to quickly understand the information presented and to ask very poignant questions. My clients felt that they were heard by someone who understood the issues of the case. I would certainly use Sherman Knight as an arbitrator again.
