For our Matrimonial and Family Law cases we typically utilize a co-mediation style. Co-mediation involves having two mediators work together as a team. Some of the advantages of this approach include: the mediation team can represent disputants’ diverse characteristics, a disputant has a better chance of feeling a sense of trust with at least one of the two mediators, the disputants have the advantage of the combined skills of two mediators, whose skills enhance and complement each other.
