A Win-Win Mediation Approach

  •  Recognizes that the interests of disputing parties are not necessarily opposed.
  •  Accepts that mediation begins with advance preparation, not at an initial meeting of the parties.
  •  Applies classic and innovative procedures specially adapted to the situation.
  •  Guides the parties  to develop their own agreement without undue pressure.
  •  Presents suggestions that are guided by extensive court and counseling experience.

  •  Directs meaningful venting of negative feelings toward improved mutual understanding.
  •  Results from collaboration that is patient and persistent.
  • Preserves beneficial aspects of the parties’ relationship.
  • Includes pre-mediation and needed post-mediation services that do not increase a day’s fees.
