What is Mediation?

If you have a conflict or disagreement that you cannot resolve yourself, mediation may be the answer. Mediation helps you and your disputant(s) resolve your differences skillfully and effectively. During mediation, you will discuss the issues important to you and determine the outcome yourselves. The concerns of each party in the dispute will be clarified with the help of trained, impartial mediators. The mediators will encourage clear and constructive discussions, but will not impose a solution on you. You will be assisted in finding a solution that is acceptable to everyone in the conflict. Quicker and cheaper than going to court, mediation produces a more satisfying and longer lasting solution. There is no charge for our service.
