Any civil dispute involving two or more people who need help communicating
What HAPPENS IN mediation?
People or groups in dispute (participants) invite a neutral person (mediator) to facilitate a constructive conversation. The mediator supports an open dialogue allowing each person to be heard. The participants choose what to discuss and if there is an agreement, the participants decide what it says.
People who have any role in a family, business, organization, friendship, or neighborhood, and need help talking about a dispute, may participate in mediation.
During my twenty years of practicing law, I witnessed the time, money, and emotional energy exhausted in litigation. When folks create their own solution in a private setting, they usually feel better, save time and money, and the resolution lasts. Mediation helps people engage in meaningful and constructive conversations.
