Welcome to

Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) where an impartial third party, known as a mediator, helps parties involved in a dispute to reach a mutually acceptable resolution. The mediator facilitates communication between the parties, helps them identify their interests and concerns, and assists in generating options for a resolution. Unlike a judge or arbitrator, a mediator does not make decisions or impose a solution; instead, they guide the parties toward finding their own agreement.

The mediation process is voluntary, and participants typically have more control over the outcome compared to traditional legal proceedings. It is often used in various contexts, including family disputes, workplace conflicts, business disputes, and community issues. Mediation can be a more cost-effective, timely, and flexible way to resolve conflicts compared to going to court or engaging in formal arbitration.

Key elements of mediation include:

Voluntary Participation: Parties choose to participate in mediation willingly.
Impartiality: The mediator remains neutral and does not take sides or advocate for any party.


Confidentiality: Discussions that occur during mediation are usually confidential to encourage open communication.
Self-Determination: The parties involved make their own decisions about the resolution, rather than having a decision imposed upon them.
