WHAT MEDIATORS DO
As mediators, our goal is to assist parties in reaching a voluntary resolution of their conflict in an amicable manner. We work as a neutral third party and help you achieve your goal of resolution. We meet with each party in joint or private sessions, listen to each side’s views, review information, and explore options. We know the importance of understanding and addressing underlying concerns, so we keep these in mind as we assist you with communication, negotiation and ultimate resolution of the dispute. We help you to evaluate strengths, weaknesses, and potential outcomes from both legal and human factors perspectives, and work with you to creatively identify solutions that are acceptable to all involved.
While most mediations are resolved in a day or less, on occasion follow-up is called for. We stay with you, until your conflict is resolved.
When resolution is reached, we prepare a memorandum of your agreement, which then reflects a binding settlement.
By law, mediation sessions are confidential. That means that if the conflict does not resolve, and later goes to court or to arbitration, no one will be able to see the mediator’s notes, or learn about what occurred at the mediation.
