Our purpose is to help solve problems and resolve disputes in the most cost-effective and civil manner. Mediation is an opportunity for both parties to sit down with an unbias third-party and calmly work towards a peaceful, amicable resolution. Before unresolved arguments or conflicts erupt into costly litigation, which is sure to bring about even more emotional distress and financial hardships, lets talk it out.
Mediation is the Preferred Method of Dispute Resolution
Mediation is less expensive, less time-consuming and less stressful than litigation and court proceedings. If a conflict seems to be heading in the wrong direction, with you and the opposition unwilling to budge, then the first step is to hire an experienced and qualified mediator. Whether the conflict arises from principle or need, our mediators will create a safe environment for both sides and help facilitate the conversation to openness, discussion and understandability. Only then can the conflict be addressed and resolved.
"Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbor to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough." - Abraham Lincoln
We believe what Abraham Lincoln believes - do the best to assist others in resolving their conflicts (it's in our mission, values, vision) and there will still be enough business. In fact, we know it to be true that when we help others efficiently resolve their disputes, save money and return to a state of peace and harmony, then we will have many more opportunities to help others do the same. Our mission is to get you a peaceful, amicable resolution so you can once again focus on living.
Our 3 P's of Mediation - People, Place, Problem
People - We understand that the conflict exists because there is a perceived injustice to everyone involved. First and foremost, we respect both parties as they rightfully deserve and see all involved as a person who has a need not satisfied.
Place - A neutral environment acts as a bridge that connects the two adversarial sides. When on the bridge, neither side has an advantage or disadvantage based on environmental factors. Here, we're all able to focus on the people and the problem.
Problem - Once the people are validated and the safe space has been established, our mediators are now able to attack the problem. Isolating these prerequisite variables allows us to isolate the problem and thus creates and more productive setting for conflict resolution.
