Mediation Provides An Alternative

A mediator can help parties solve problems together.

Solutions are in the hands of the parties.

Relationships are preserved or improved.

Mediation costs a fraction of litigation.

Results are possible quickly.



Brings People Together

Conflict is sometimes obvious, but not always. It is important to understand what is happening, whether conflict exists and where it comes from.

People Listen

Conflict often develops and escalates because people don’t listen to each other. Mediation helps parties to listen to and understand each other.

Develops Solutions

Solutions come from negotiation that can only take place after there is understanding & common ground. Solutions can be novel and represent a win for both .
