The Mediation Program
The Court’s Mediation Program was established to assist the judges and citizens with resolving legal disputes in a manner that is more economical and amicable than a trial. Parties are permitted to choose from a list of court-approved mediators. This list, along with the biography of each mediator, is available on the Court’s website. There were 417 meditations conducted in 2017 with a settlement rate of 74%.
The Judges of Montgomery County Common Pleas Court want this process to be user-friendly to attorneys, their clients, and the mediators. The goal is for the best outcome for all parties involved.
