    The last place you want to be these days is in a Courtroom -- and that refers to both the client and counsel. Budget cutbacks, bulging caseloads and contradictory authority (even within the same jurisdiction) make it almost impossible to give your client any assurance about the outcome of the case, or the amount of money it will take to get to the end of it. Seasoned litigating attorneys know this. So why aren't there MORE mediations?
