Many people what to know what kinds of cases can be mediated, and the answer is: almost anything! Mediation is usually a good option in most non-criminal (and in some non-violent criminal) matters. These very often result in a successful resolution during mediation. Claims that do not involve a legal issue are also good candidates for mediation. For example, a dispute with a neighbor over a barking dog, which is hardly the type of claim that merits a lawsuit.
