What good is Settlement Testing?

How does Settlement Testing help me close my files?

Settlement Testing makes it safe for both sides to be honest about their settlement position.  That is why a few short minutes of Testing will tell you whether the other side is serious about resolving the case. 

How long does a Settlement Testing session last?

When I hit the Submit button, where does my number go?

Once a number is submitted, the other side will receive a notification on their screen letting them know you've submitted an offer/demand.

Your number will remain confidential. Once your opponent submits their counter, the difference in your numbers will be represented by the temperature in our thermometer.

How many sets of numbers can the two parties submit?

There is no limit.

(On avg, there are 15-20 exchanges during an 18-minute settlement testing session.)

Can the plaintiff increase the number they submit, ie. move their demand UP?

Each demand must be lower than their last.

If either side attempts to decrease their offers or increase their demands, they will be met with an error message.

Can we communicate on the phone during a testing session?

Sure. That's completely up to you.

Can’t the other side figure out my number?

No. They cannot figure this out. But the warmer it gets, the easier it'll become for parties to have a rough idea of where their opponent is at. This builds confidence-Exactly what settles cases!

Can I ever reveal my numbers to the other side?

Sure. That's up to you.
