Need someone to guide you through a mediation you’re facing?

Mediation is a fancy word for settlement conference. Typically, both parties hire a mediator to help them figure out a way to reach a settlement. Obviously, if you had figured out how to reach a settlement on your own, you would have done it and the dispute would be over.


Mediation makes sense when the parties are far apart and it doesn’t seem like there is any way the parties could reach an agreement. Time and again, we have seen a case settle after mediation when before it just did not seem possible. That settlement wasn’t reached in the first hour of mediation. It often takes a few hours.


90% of all civil cases settle without going to trial. Given this statistic and the high cost of a civil lawsuit, it often makes sense to try to settle your case sooner rather than later. A mediator or facilitator is committed to finding a settlement that works for all parties.


John Baker can mediate your case to a settlement. He understands the law and he understands what it takes to get people to put aside their concerns so they can reach a settlement. He can help you settle your case.


If you’re facing a mediation, John Baker can represent you at the mediation to get the best outcome possible. He understands the art of negotiation. He has studied the dynamics of negotiation and incorporates that knowledge in his negotiations.
