so the biggest piece of advice i can
00:06
give clients going through mediation
00:08
is preparation in terms of preparation a
00:11
few things
00:12
i think the client absolutely needs to
00:14
prepare
00:15
with their attorney in advance of
00:16
mediation and they need to understand
00:19
all the different pros and cons and they
00:21
need to understand
00:22
all the various options they have for
00:24
settlement before
00:25
walking into the mediation room
00:28
i think they need to explore with their
00:30
attorney areas of mutual gain
00:33
that both parties may be willing to
00:35
agree to and focus
00:36
their objectives on coming up with as
00:38
many creative solutions for mutual gain
00:40
as possible
00:41
and the other thing i would tell clients
00:43
going through mediation is
00:45
have some patience it’s a long day it’s
00:48
a long process
00:49
in many instances and so having some
00:52
patience with
00:53
yourself with the mediator as you’re
00:55
going through the process
00:56
i think serves clients well as they’re
00:58
getting ready
00:59
for mediation and going through the
01:01
actual mediation process
