What is MEDIATION?

MEDIATION DEFINED

Mediation is a voluntary, cooperative process in which a specially trained third party (the mediator) works with parties in dispute, assisting them in communicating  and working to achieve a peaceful, mutually beneficial resolution.  Mediation is confidential and in most cases can be handled in one day.  With mediation, the parties have control over the outcome, not the judge.

MEDIATION OCCURS...

When a judge orders parties to mediation in an attempt to resolve the case.

When attorney's believe the parties and their case would benefit from Mediation.

When parties decide themselves that they would benefit from working with a Mediator.
