Why mediate?

One option for people in conflict is to go to court. The legal system can resolve their dispute, but the emotional and financial costs can be devastating. Many disputes have a history of an amicable relationship. This is especially true in business and personal relationship disputes. Litigation (arbitration or court) will likely kill any prospect of continued relations. If you are in litigation, you may have experienced the impact of the adversarial proceeding, financially and emotionally. Mediation offers a better alternative.

Are mediator's lawyers?

A mediator is not always a lawyer. Any person acting in the capacity as a mediator or third party neurtral cannot also engage in the practice of law or therapy. They’re an unbiased third party that through specific training, helps you get to the heart of the issue and find a solution that works for everyone. Mediation moves beyond the legal system and helps you peacefully resolve family and church disputes, reduce the stress of employee/employer relations and even provide insight into collegiate academic disputes. Using mediation puts the power back in your hands to decide your future.
