Mediation

Why mediate?

A mediator can assist you to navigate the dispute and reach an agreement.

Mediation is a voluntary, confidential process where the parties are encouraged by a mediator to understand each other’s perspectives, talk through the issues, identify their mutual interests, develop realistic options, and find a solution that the parties can agree to.
