mediation group 2


When you are involved in a dispute, there are several reasons to consider mediation:

  • With the help of a neutral mediator, you work with the other party to fashion a solution that meets your needs.
  • Your solution is likely to succeed because you adapt it to your situation. It is not imposed from outside.
  • Mediation takes less time than going  to court. Complex issues can often be resolved in a day or less.
  • Mediation costs less than going to court. It's quicker and involves fewer fees.
  • Mediation can be less stressful and intimidating. It can be held at a neutral location in an ordinary room with refreshments available.
  • A mediation session is preceded by an explanation of the process so that you know what to expect.
  • A mediator can act as a buffer between you and the other party, making it possible to talk safely about difficult issues.
  • Mediation is confidential. Court proceedings are public.

With mediation you can resolve your dispute and move on with your life sooner, at less expense, with less wear and tear, and with a creative solution that suits your needs.

Consider the value of resolving your dispute simply by having a meeting. You'll be surprised what you can accomplish.
