What Can Be Mediated?
Most any conflict can be resolved if the people are willing to
work in good faith. Such types of conflict are:
- Family Issues
- Neighbor Conflicts
- Employment Disputes
- Civil Rights
- Temporary Restraining Orders
What’s the Process?
First there is a short conference to see if mediation is
appropriate. There is no charge for this. The next step is the
mediation. This consists of a meeting, or series of meetings,
in which the mediator meets with the parties. The meetings
usually last about 3 hours. Agreement can often be reached
in one meeting. The rate is $75/hr. per party, with the final
cost usually being a fraction of that of legal proceedings.
