Civil Mediation

In South Carolina civil lawsuits, mediation is now the rule rather than the exception. In fact, parties in nearly all civil suits now are required to attend mediation before a trial may be scheduled.

Morton & Gettys offers mediation services, not only for civil lawsuits, but also for disputes involving leases, small business ownership and employment. Often, mediation at an early stage can eliminate the need for filing a lawsuit.

Through mediation, parties share their opinions and reach a consensus on how to resolve the issue. The mediator does not make a decision, but guides the parties as they craft their own.

The Morton & Gettys mediators have decades of experience in courtrooms as well as an in-depth knowledge of the law, both of which are assets in helping parties resolve their disputes.
