I am currently in the midst of my Promissory Note case with my former firm (large wirehouse, signed long contract, awful firm, left before end of contract, they filed, we filed counter claim, arbitration scheduled, etc. etc.). I have been working with attorneys from the start and have been going through the motions since my "Demand Letter" arrived.We have a scheduled Arbitration a few months from now and my attorney heard from my former firm's attorneys asking, "in light of all of the work to be done in advance of the upcoming Arbitration, would we be interested in Mediation?" I view this as a positive for a number of reasons (e.g. Mediation is not "binding", etc.).I am just wanting the opinion of ONLY those people with knowledge (no BS answers from Brokers who have no experience with this and should be working anyway insead of giving smart a$$ answers to things that they know nothing about). My question is: is mediation a "better" solution vs. Arbitration?Any knowledgeable insight would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you!!!
