As a compliment to R. Nicholas Haney's litigation practice, Nicholas Haney frequently serves as a private or court appointed mediator. With Nicholas Haney's expertise with practicing law for over 30 years, he can mediate disputes between two or more parties early in the litigation process prior to the filing of lawsuits, or for cases that have litigation pending and for cases that are on appeal. Mediation provides an informal way of examining the issues in dispute so that the case may be resolved. Each party will confidentially present his or her view of the case to Nicholas Haney, a neutral mediator, who then helps the parties focus on the important issues and negotiate a settlement. He will facilitate the settlement process by exploring a full range of ideas for resolving the dispute, and he will help the parties identify and clarify the central issues, assess the merits of
the case and promote the informal exchange of information. If no settlement is reached, Nicholas Haney will refer the case back to the court to proceed with litigation.

Mediation is the most popular form of Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) and is encouraged by the courts for parties to participate in to resolve their case prior to trial. Mediation is a voluntary and confidential way of resolving disputes in a speedy but fair manner with concrete effects. It is less formal and less complex, and it eliminates a lot of the risk, cost and stress of litigation. Mediation increases the control the parties have over the resolution, which is more likely to produce a result that is mutually agreeable for all parties.
