Individual Settlement Facilitation

What is Settlement Facilitation?

Settlement facilitation is a way to resolve a lawsuit without having the judge make a decision.  The Settlement Facilitator will help the parties assess the strengths and weaknesses of their case, and will also help the parties try and find a solution they can both agree to.  The Plaintiff and Defendant will ultimately decide whether to settle and on what terms. The Settlement Facilitator cannot force either party to settle.
