Mediation and Dispute Resolution

Chane Socarras PLLC offers mediation and alternative dispute resolution services to resolve various disputes in state and federal court litigation matters throughout Florida.  As Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Civil Mediators, Jonathan Chane and Ruben E. Socarras each bring their extensive litigation backgrounds and experiences to every case, which gives them the ability to help parties resolve their disputes through the process of neutral mediation.

In Florida, mediation is an informal process for resolving disputes that allows parties, with the help of a neutral mediator, to come to an agreement.  A certified mediator conducts the mediation according to rules and statutes requiring mediators to remain neutral, work for the mutual benefit of the parties, and help parties voluntarily enter into an agreement.   Mediation can be voluntary, prior to or during litigation, but also Court ordered during litigation since almost every civil case must be mediated before it proceeds to a trial.

Mediation opens lines of communication and allows parties to explore all settlement options in order to resolve disputes. Everything said during mediation is confidential and (except as provided by law) may not be repeated to anyone other than the other party and/or the party’s attorney.  Mediation gives parties more control over the outcome of their case, normally allows the case to be resolved on their own timeline, and can help parties avoid the immense expenses and risk associated with litigation and a trial.

Mediation may be performed in-person or via videoconferencing, such as through the use of Zoom or Skype.
