A Place for Mediation Inc.

Before you litigate, always mediate.

The Process

Mediators talk with disputants jointly and/or separately during courteous and relaxed sessions in neutral settings. During this process with the appropriate facilitative approach, effective, satisfactory, and workable solutions that result in a wise agreement can often emerge. All of our mediators have a wide variety of techniques that can be used to resolve issues, have specialized training in their areas of practice and are familiar with the current state of the law with respect to court decisions in the area.
