What Happens In Mediation?
Participants share what issues they want to discuss in a private, confidential setting.
A mediator facilitates a constructive conversation and supports an open dialogue.
The participants, who know the situation best, make decisions based on their wishes.
"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."
-Sherry Bruckner, Mediator and Peace Builder
