Why Try Mediation First?

Mediation allows individuals, families, neighbors, businesses and other organizations the opportunity to:

  • Resolve disputes quickly, before they escalate and result in the need to use more expensive, time-consuming and stressful adversarial conflict resolution methods.

  • Preserve valuable personal and professional relationships that could be damaged by using adversarial conflict resolution methods.

  • Resolve disputes with the potential for more creative and satisfying results than are often available through the courts.

  • Decide for themselves what a fair settlement to their conflict should be.

  • Learn effective communication and negotiation techniques that can be used in the future to prevent additional problems.
