Mediation and Arbitration


Every civil case filed in North Carolina Superior Court is required to go to mediation. Mediation is a formal settlement conference conducted by a trained certified mediator. Sanford Thompson has been a certified mediator since 2001. Since that time, he has served as a mediator in hundreds of cases. He is frequently chosen to mediate large, complicated cases. He has taught mediation techniques to other lawyers.

Mr. Thompson has also been selected to serve as an arbitrator in many cases. Arbitration is a process similar to a trial in which the arbitrator or a panel of arbitrators listens to the evidence and renders a decision. Arbitrators are the judge and jury in such situations.

The lawyers at Dixon & Thompson Law PLLC, have represented clients in hundreds of mediations. Many of those mediations have resulted in very favorable settlements.
