Legal Mediation Services

i-mediationMediation is a way to resolve disputes in a prompt, efficient and cost effective manner. Mediation is a way to approach a dispute from a fresh perspective.

Instead of looking backward to decide who is at fault, it looks forward to what agreements the parties can reach to resolve their disputes or govern their future interactions. The mediator uses his or her skills to help parties understand each other’s needs and interests to find common ground. From these, the parties begin to generate options. The options are not based on “giving in” or compromise of any principle. Instead, they are based on a search for creative ways to resolve differences and meet identified needs. Agreements are reached only when the parties all agree. Because mediated agreements are voluntary, they are more likely to be followed by all parties.
