What is mediation?
Mediation is a process for negotiating and resolving conflicts with the help of a neutral third party. Unlike in litigation or trials, decision-making rests in the hands of the parties in mediation, rather than at the discretion of your attorneys or a judge. A professional and skilled mediator offers a structured process to help you identify issues, obtain necessary information, break through impasses and, ultimately, reach mutually acceptable and binding agreements. Mediation is voluntary and confidential. It is generally concluded in a fraction of the time of litigation, with substantially lower financial and emotional costs. Mediation keeps you in control of your future.
