There are many situations in which litigation is not considered to be the most timely or cost-effective way of resolving business disputes. In these cases alternative resolution processes are recommended by attorneys or required by the courts.  If the solution is court-ordered mediation or voluntary (pre-litigation) mediation, a mediator certified by the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission (DRC) provides neutral third-party oversight to the proceedings.  The selection of this legal professional can greatly impact the quality of the mediation and the overall satisfaction of the involved parties.  Experience, reputation and availability are all important considerations when choosing a mediator certified by the DRC.
