What can be Mediated?
Unlike a Judge or Arbitrator, a Mediator does not decide how your problem or claim should be resolved. A Mediator is a neutral professional that will help the parties navigate through a dispute resolution process which should be tailored for the parties needs. In Mediation, if successful, the parties reach a mutually accepted outcome of the dispute.
Just about anything and everything can be Mediated- divorce, Homeowner Association, business, real estate, construction and employment disputes. You can mediate your claim or dispute with or without the assistance of legal counsel. The Mediation, as agreed to by the parties, is Confidential and cannot be used in future legal action if the Mediation is unsuccessful.
