Mediation BIP, LLC
"A Conflict Avoidance & Resolution Company"
What is Mediation?
A process, facilitated by an omni-partial party, guiding people from conflict to resolution.
Is Mediation the same as Arbitration?
NO! Mediation is client/party driven; therefore, the parties decide the outcome/results. On the other hand with Arbitration, the parties present their case to an arbitrator for a decision.
What if someone already filed a lawsuit?
It depends on how far along in the process the parties are for us to participate.
Please e-mail us with more information.
How do I add a Mediation clause to a contract (buying/selling, landlord/tenant, partnership agreement, employment)?
You should always seek legal counsel before drafting and/or adding a clause to a contract!
However, the following should suffice:
'The parties agree that if there arise a dispute as to the details and/or interpretation of this contract, the parties will employ the services of Mediation BIP, LLC to settle the dispute before engaging with a court of competent jurisdiction."
What if I don't want to fill out a web-form?
Simply send us a detailed e-mail, explaining your dispute to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Where do the meetings take place?
Our Office: 1924 W. Hunting Park Ave., Phila., PA 19140, with some exceptions.
What if I don't live near or cannot make it to your office?
We can either phone or video conference.
(See Services & Prices).
Are the meetings confidential?
Yes. See 'Privacy & Policy' page.
Are attorneys or legal advisors welcome?
Yes! Anyone that you have accompanying you (up to 2 people) over the age of 18 are welcome as long as they sign a confidentiality agreement form.
What is a Demand Letter?
It is a formal notice demanding to whom it is addressed, to rectify a dispute in a manner specified in the letter.
How long are the meetings?
In person meetings are normally an hour long.
Do I contact the other party or do you?
Once you submit a dispute form (or e-mail us the proper info.) and we agree to pursue assisting you in resolving the conflict, we will attempt to contact the other party, to invite them to a confidential mediation session.
Do you accept cash or personal checks?
Generally no, but you can simply pay thru the website (go to payment).
What if I (we) don't have the money?
We'll work with you to the best of our ability.
