Mediation happens when parties either voluntarily, or pursuant to court order, get together to try to resolve their differences without a Court trial. The dispute is discussed, and often times a mediator proposes as settlement. However, the parties to the mediation do not have to agree to what the mediator proposes.


If you do not want to agree to what the mediator suggested, then don't sign whatever agreement he or she proposed.


You can - and should - request the trial you mentioned.

  1. Please advise your attorney immediately (tomorrow) that you do not agree with the resolution achieved at the mediation.
  2. Tell him or her that you will not sign the settlement agreement reached at the mediation.
  3. Tell him or her to request a trial.

Good luck, and thank you for your courtesy.
