I believe mediation can work for almost everyone in almost any situation. It isn't for litigants alone. Mediation can be used to resolve disagreements before court action is initiated, instead of court altogether, or to help people who have no intention of ever going to court.
As a process of assisted negotiation, mediation can be used to enhance communication and cooperation between business partners, domestic partners, neighbors, Board members, co-workers, parents, parents and teens, siblings, friends, employees and their supervisors, tenants and landlords, clients and their contractors . . . almost anyone.

My approach to mediation: In a supportive and comfortable setting, you will be afforded the opportunity to explain your point of view, clarify any misunderstandings, listen, explore options, and negotiate an agreement.
