In South Carolina state and federal courts, mediation is required in the course of litigating most civil cases. The vast majority of civil lawsuits are resolved at mediation or soon thereafter, and for good reason. Litigation is expensive, and its outcome is generally uncertain. Therefore, having a skilled mediator who can guide opposing parties to a mutually agreeable resolution of their dispute is a true asset.
