Oklahoma Civil, Commercial and Employment Mediation – How Does It Fit With The Legal System?
Mediation can take place before or after legal action is initiated. Typically, the mediation results in a memorandum of understanding which outlines points of agreement between the parties. This document generally is not considered binding until both sides have had an opportunity for an attorney review.
Mediation is not a substitute for independent legal representation. Lawyers advise their clients of their legal rights and obligations, and tell them what to expect if they go to court. The attorney may act as an advisor and consultant and prepares any documents which must be filed with the court.
