Why Mediation

Similar to divorce mediation, civil mediation brings conflicting parties together with an impartial person, a mediator, who helps them negotiate and resolve their differences.

In mediation, the decision is not up to a judge, but rather decided by the parties involved. The mediator does not rule in favor of or against anyone. Instead, the mediator acts as a neutral referee between the opposing interests. The mediator suggests ways to bring the parties’ focus to the real issues at hand to resolve conflict, rather than trying to “beat” the other. A mediator attempts to seek compromise from each party during the mediation process.


Mediation generally begins with a joint meeting of all parties, where the issues are outlined and what is important to each party and their respective positions is determined. This allows the parties to voice their concerns to each other and allows the parties to see what the problem is from the other’s perspective. Everything that is said in the mediation process is confidential. Nothing said can be used against either party in any other proceeding if the mediation does not result in a settlement.

The joint meeting is followed by private meetings between the mediator and each party or their counsel. This permits the parties to disclose strengths and weaknesses in their case that might have a role in bringing about a resolution on acceptable terms. It also gives the mediator a chance to play devil's advocate with the party and perhaps see their case in another light.

The types of matters that can be submitted to mediation in our office are as follows:
