Mediation or alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is a voluntary process in which the parties make decisions together based on their understanding of the issue they face. This is done with the assistance of a mediator, a non-coercive neutral, who helps the parties negotiate an agreement to resolve the dispute.
Litigation can be very expensive and unpredictable. Resolving disputes though mediation and voluntary dispute resolution is generally much more cost effective.
Mediation is a confidential form of dispute resolution and offers the opportunity to settle without the publicity of a court proceeding.
A mediation can be scheduled in a matter of days and can be in person or held remotely.
Mediation is non-binding and gives the parties full control to determine the outcome.
Mediation offers the opportunity to settle on your own time without being at the mercy of a court calendar.
Mediation helps reduce the tension in a dispute to allow effective and less harmful communication. Parties have the opportunity for a positive path forward.
In support of the ongoing efforts to prevent the spread of Covid-19, we are not scheduling in person mediation sessions. All mediations will be held virtually via video conference until further notice.
