Mediation: Sooner Is Better

Mediation is a private, economical, fast, and informal intervention process, where a trained neutral individual attempts to help parties to amicably reach their own solution. Mediation offers many advantages to the alternative of giving up the decision making to a judge, jury or arbitrator, including time and cost savings, informality and confidentiality of the process, eliminating uncertainty and creating an opportunity for creative solutions that would not otherwise be possible.

The videos appearing as links on this page are intended to provide you with more information about the mediation process and the reason that you should consider engaging in this process as soon as a dispute arises.
