What is Mediation?

Mediation is a form of conflict resolution.  Our trained, impartial mediators help you to clarify and resolve your dispute in a way that is realistic and satisfactory for all involved.

Step One – The mediator meets with individuals in a comfortable and convenient location.

Step Two – Each individual explains his/her issues and concerns.  The mediator listens, asks questions, and helps clarify misunderstandings.

Step Three – The mediator helps the individuals explore options and reach a satisfactory, effective, and realistic resolution.
