During our time in Chicago we attended court mediations at the equivalent County Court with the CENTER FOR CONFLICT RESOLUTION and participated in further training alongside other Illinois Attorneys.

Judges in Chicago will often refer cases to mediation at the first hearing ..mine settled with both parties walking away very happy with the outcome..they were allowed to create their own settlement. Rather than barter with each side trying to seek concessions, they were more creative and explored options which could benefit them both.
