In a comfortable environment conducive to identifying needs, airing concerns, and solving problems, mediation provides an appealing alternative to litigation, offering distinct benefits:

What is the Process?

A professional mediator works with the parties in structuring an equitable settlement. As an independent and impartial facilitator, the mediator is actively engaged in problem solving. Participants become involved in shaping an agreement that is uniquely suited to their needs and circumstances. The non-adversarial nature of mediation is especially appropriate for parties in the kind of ongoing relationships found in the workplace and the family.

Consultations are available upon request. Parties have the opportunity to ask questions about the mediation process and to explore whether mediation is appropriate for their case. Scheduling is done at the convenience of the parties and may include evening and weekend hours. Mediation sessions range from two hours to full-day sessions, depending upon the nature of the dispute and the number of participants.
