And congratulations... you have taken an important first step in resolving the conflict you face by considering mediation. Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution which provides a greater range of options to the parties involved in order that they may resolve a conflict in a self-determined, respectful manner outside of court. Our mediators are certified and trained professionals committed to providing impartial third party assistance in a problem solving environment.
What are the specific benefits of mediation?
1) Mediation can save time and money. The longer a conflict remains unresolved the greater the cost and the more time consuming it becomes.
2) Mediation can increase party control: The longer a conflict remains unresolved the less control the parties have over the process and outcome.
3) Mediation can preserve relationships: The longer a conflict remains unresolved the more adversarial the relationship between the parties becomes.
4) Mediation can produce mutually agreeable settlements. The longer a conflict remains unresolved the more likely the end result will be less satisfying.
