Benefits of Mediation

Prompt Resolution

Mediation cases can sometimes be resolved in as little as one session. The same cases, if resolved in court, may take years to reach a decision.


Because of the quick turnaround time, mediation often costs a fraction of the cost of a trial.


When a case goes to trial, it becomes public. Depending on the nature of the case, the press may even get involved and publicize some of the details. In mediation, the privacy of both parties is protected, and the details of the dispute are kept confidential.

Joint Decision Making

Perhaps the best reason to attempt mediation is that both parties get to have a say in the outcome of the case.

It May Be Required

Many judges will not accept a case for trial until the parties have attempted mediation. This happens now more than ever because so many cases are backlogged, and getting a case to court may take months or even years.

What Kind Of Cases Will You Mediate?

Blake Bailey has experience with a variety of cases and can provide mediation services for cases involving:

  • Negligence and personal injury
  • Medical liability and malpractice
  • Business contract violations
  • Business transactions
  • Employee-employer relations
  • Cases requiring mediation by contact
  • International and interstate mediation
  • And most large-scale and complex civil disputes


An effective impartial arbitrator is sought when contract disagreements arise. Many contracts include an arbitration clause, stating that in the case of a legal dispute, all claims will be settled by arbitration.

Having tried nearly 150 cases before a jury, Blake Bailey is an expert arbitrator. Contact him today to request his services.

Benefits of Arbitration

Employers, construction companies, health insurance agencies, auto dealers, money lenders, and other organizations often use arbitration agreements in their contracts to keep cases out of the courtroom. Here are some of the top reasons many corporations utilize arbitration to settle disputes:

Protects Your Privacy

Court cases are usually open to the public. If you want to keep your dispute confidential while reaching a decision, arbitration may be an excellent choice.

Provides A Fast Resolution

Arbitration almost always leads to a quick decision, which is why many businesses prefer it over litigation. With arbitration, you’ll often have an answer in a matter of days, rather than weeks or months.

Costs Less Than Trial

Arbitration is faster and less formal than trial proceedings. That usually means the cost of attorney fees and other legal charges are less than taking your case to court.

Provides A Final Decision

Decisions made by an arbitrator are usually final with no chance of appeal which could add cost and time. This allows both parties to move forward with an answer they can live with, without taking the case to court.

Serves Any Jurisdiction

Sometimes, two parties who reside in other states or countries use arbitration because their case cannot be tried within local jurisdictions.

Utilizes A Neutral Third-Party

Usually, both parties agree on the arbitrator they’ve selected, which helps ensure a fair outcome.

Who Needs Arbitration?

Arbitration isn’t right for every situation. Here are some of the circumstances where arbitration benefits civil cases:

  • Negligence and personal injury cases
  • Medical liability and malpractice cases
  • Business contract violations
  • Cases requiring arbitration by contract or ones that are agreed to
  • International and interstate arbitration
  • And most large-scale and complex civil disputes
