WHAT IS MEDIATION?
Mediation is a voluntary dispute resolution process in which a neutral third person ( a "Mediator") meets with the parties, and assists them in reaching a settlement of their dispute. A mediator will work with both parties to obtain a global resolution of all issues. Our mediators are seasoned professionals with have conducted mediations and participated in mediations to understand all sides of the process.
HOW LONG WILL MEDIATION TAKE?
There is no set time on how long mediation will take. Mediation is task oriented with a goal of reaching agreement. This agreement may be reached in a very short time in situations where mediating parties are already at a very high level of agreement and are able to specifically describe that agreement. In situations where there are a number of "open issues" (either disputed issues or issues that have not been well considered), the mediation will take a bit longer. Often mediation is concluded in a single session. On complex matters it may take multiple sessions
WHAT IS THE VALUE OF MEDIATION?
It is the most cost effective method of resolving disputes and the least stressful comparing to a Court trial. In addition to the financial and emotional savings of mediation, participants are able to fashion their own agreement which is sensitive and responsive to perceived equities and desired outcomes. The result is that the work product of mediation, the Memorandum of Understanding, provides a comprehensive resolution in terms mediating parties understand and believe in. This results in a commitment to the agreement which has been shown to enhance future compliance by providing a cooperative atmosphere for performance of the terms of agreement._____________________________________________________________________________________________
