Resolving Cases Through Mediation

Question: Is there a way that a case can be resolved without a judge? Answer: Yes. Mediation is a way to resolve or settle a dispute without the case being decided by a judge or an arbitrator. A mediator is a neutral third person who helps the parties and their attorneys arrive at a mutually agreeable settlement. Keep in mind that a mediator does not decide the case but only assists in a voluntary settlement.     For more information about Illinois law, visit  If you have a legal question, send it to Illinois Law Now is a series of newspaper and internet posts prepared by the Illinois State Bar Association that address legal issues of interest to the public.
