Because many clients have no experience with litigation, they often have no experience with mediation. As a result, my clients often ask many questions about the mediation process. A frequent question I receive is: Do I have to speak at mediation? This is a great question!
Check out the video below for the answer. The full transcript is below.
Indeed, don’t worry! You do not have to speak at mediation. Your lawyer – and the other party’s lawyer – will be doing most of the speaking during mediation. Now, the mediatior may have questions for you, but the mediatior will likely only do so when he or she is meeting privately with you and your lawyer.
