Mediation: The Civilized Alternative

If you think mediation is just for “nice people” who “get along,” think again. There’s a reason it’s called “conflict resolution.”

In fact, the people who benefit most from mediation are high conflict people. Mediation provides a way for people to work through their differences and get to the solution to the problem. A skilled mediator facilitates the process so that the parties are fully heard and involved in reaching a satisfactory resolution. People who go through mediation report a very high rate of satisfaction with the process, regardless of the result!

Mediation is about self-determination, about making informed decisions. The parties own the outcome – it is not “handed down” by a judge.

Mediation is private, dignified, and cost-effective.
