Community-based conflict prevention and resolution
Neutral third-party, out of court negotiations of settlement agreements. Mediation is great for people who wish to stay our of court through life's transitions.
Taking cases to court is expensive in time, money, emotions and energy and it usually results in both parties being unhappy. Submitting your case to court is a delegation of your choice to a judge. Further, the law is written to generalize to the masses which limits the options for outcomes. If you want to walk away with a creative solution for transition, mediation is worth consideration. Mediation builds on commonalities, rather than proving blame.
Hiring an attorney-mediator provides an added layer of expertise for increased understanding of how other systems will respond to the conflict and helps parties stay true to their fundamental interests rather than the conflict itself.

Our legal and regulatory systems were designed by and for the people. However, they have become unreachable for most, especially in emotionally-charged matters. Often, when confronted with life circumstances that require the use of the legal or regulatory system, people feel overwhelmed, under-prepared and priced out.
