Criminal Mediation

Criminal Mediations: Theory, Style and Strategy - www.wiseresolution.com/Criminal%20Mediation.pdf - This article by V. Michelle Obradovic, Esq., Wise Resolution, LLC of Birmingham, is a great source for essential information on Criminal Mediation. It reads in part...

“Plea bargaining done well revisits the past relationship between all stakeholders so as to manage the present relationship in order to structure an appropriate future relationship. To be most effective as a resolutionist in a criminal matter, the mediator must fully appreciate the charges, the inherent philosophical and moral tensions, constitutional protections (or lack thereof), confidentiality, privilege and the specific political agendas and financial pressures relevant in the local jurisdiction. Resolutionist practitioners have to embrace all three modes of legal problem solving; judgment, consent and systems design, and understand the ways in which one bears upon the other and on the different stakeholders in the case.”
