I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live.

~George Bernard Shaw

Mediator's role:

The Mediator provides facilitation tools to the participants in communication, in getting over an impasse, in being proactive and  in being empowered for self-determination. The Mediator, thus assists the parties in fashioning creative, out of the box solutions.

The Mediator will provide information that is needed to further dialogue. What a Mediator will not do is to cast judgment or give advice.

The mediator helps the parties to explore areas of possible compromise and to develop a solution that meets everybody's interests.

Sometimes the Mediator may meet with the parties separately for a private discussion that might help move the parties toward a resolution.
 
In short, the Mediator helps the parties in identifying and discussing the issues, in compreheding and dealing with the underlying feelings, problem solving, brainstorming alternatives, exploring options for resolution, developing better communication skills to address the other party, role-playing and a trunk full of other facilitation tools available to a mediator.


The parties benefit from Mediation when:

  • Parties  have an ongoing business or personal relationship or a significant past relationship; communication problems exist between parties
  • The principal barriers to settlement are personal or emotional, especially Divorce
  • Parties want to tailor a solution to meet specific needs or interests
  • Cases that involve complex technical or scientific data requiring particular expertise
  • The parties have an incentive to settle because of time, cost of litigation, or drain on productivity
  • The parties wish to retain control over the outcome of the case; or the parties seek a more private forum for the resolution of their dispute
Advantages Of Mediation:

  • The result may benefit both or all sides and thus present a win/win solution.
  • The outcome can be tailored to meet the unique needs of the case and the parties.
  • It is extremely cost effective
  • The parties are always in control
  • It is time saving. Disputes are resolved in less time and more efficiently.
  • It preserves the integrity of relationships and helps people in moving on.
  • It helps maintain privacy and dignity of individuals and entities.
  • The best part is that Mediation is absolutely confidential. That is what transpires in Mediation is private and the records of the Mediator can not be used in or subpoenaed for litigation without the parties' consent**.
