About Mediation

What is Mediation?

  • Mediation is a process in which people who are involved in a dispute gather in the presence of a third party neutral who listens to their concerns and helps them craft an agreement based on their needs and interests.
  • The mediator does not act as a judge, attorney, or therapist. In other words, the mediator does not render opinions, give legal advice, or dig into your “inner-child.” Rather, the mediator helps the people involved in a dispute to focus on their interests and explore options that maximize their goals.
  • The research shows that parties who are involved in the process of resolving their own disputes and crafting their own agreements in mediation are more satisfied with the process and more likely to follow through with the agreement.
