Why Mediation?

Mediation is a significant step in the life of any dispute.  After sufficient information has been developed, the stakeholders meet with a trained mediator.  The mediator’s role is to stimulate a dialogue designed to encourage incremental bargaining based upon an introspective evaluation of facts and evidence combined with litigation risk.  A mediated resolution offers the parties valuable and intangible benefits such as certainty, control, and closure.  A mediated resolution often offers the litigant the best possible outcome.

We strive to provide a process where all parties feel both comfortable, and engaged, allowing them to make important decisions about their case.
