What types of conflicts have you helped resolve?

Mediation is a process that can help resolve almost any conflict. Here is just a short list:

  • Student conflict in schools
  • Youth conflict in the community
  • Decisions about permanent placement for youth in foster care
  • General Civil Court actions (pre- and post filing)
  • Small Claims Court actions (pre- and post filing)
  • Divorce issues (pre- and post filing)
  • Child Custody/Parenting Time
  • Estate planning and family decisions about care of elderly parents
  • Facilitation of family discussions about difficult decisions
  • Disputes about Individual Education Plans (Special Education)
  • Neighborhood conflicts
  • Landlord and Tenant
  • Labor and employment disputes
  • Civil Rights actions

How does the process work?

  • At the mediation, trained mediators will listen to all sides of the dispute.  Each party will get a chance to explain, uninterrupted, their own point of view.  The mediator will encourage communication from all sides to uncover facts, identify issues, and explore possible solutions.
  • When the parties reach a solution, their agreement will be put in writing by the mediator.  It is then a legally enforceable document.
