Mediation is a personal, interactive, problem solving method used to improve understanding and resolve problems in the most beneficial way for everyone involved. The process is private, confidential and considerably less expensive than lengthy litigation. The process allows the parties to remain in control of the resolution of any case, before that control is placed in the hands of a judge or jury. The mediator is an impartial, neutral, and unbiased third-party who assists the mediation participants with communicating perspectives clearly, clarifying issues, exploring potential options, and reaching and implementing agreements if the parties are able to reach agreements. The mediator controls this process, but has no authority to make a judgment or influence any decision.
