Mediation offers a safe environment for parties to express their needs and interests, discuss options and reach a mutually agreed upon solution. Through Mediation you might be able to preserve important relationships. Mediators facilitate communication, assure fairness in the process, and maintain the balance of power between the parties.
During mediation parties may choose to be represented by an attorney. Mediators do not give legal advice or interpret the law. They can refer parties to impartial outside experts in legal, mental health, financial or other fields to address specific questions or issues that might arise. If parties arrive at a mutually satisfactory resolution, mediators may assist in drafting Memorandums of Understanding, comprised of the terms to which the parties have agreed. If mediation is unsuccessful and an agreement cannot be reached, parties may still pursue all legal remedies, including private lawsuits.
