Mediation is an opportunity for parties to express their concerns, to better understand one another’s perspectives, and to work towards a mutually acceptable settlement of disputed issues.  Mediators are individuals trained to facilitate the discussion between parties.  Mediation is an excellent option for parties seeking an alternative to litigation and the court system.  Issues mediated may include a variety of matters, including, but not limited to, custody, child support, spousal support, division of property, division of debt, real estate disputes, contractual disputes, personal injury claims, estate litigation, etc.
