Mediation is an efficient, cost effective, and relationship sustaining way to resolve differences and move on from a dispute. It's voluntary, private, and only binding if you agree.
In mediation, you are heard before a neutral mediator and the other party. The mediator facilitates the process, and you decide the terms of any agreement. Mediation provides the opportunity to avoid huge litigation costs and to resolve disputes in a respectable manner.
