Mediation and Dispute Resolution

Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process in which a neutral third-party helps discuss difficult issues, negotiate an agreement and resolve disputes.

Dispute resolution through mediation is significantly less expensive than litigation.  It can help you resolve your disagreement without destroying your relationship with a family member or business partner.

When dealing with a financial impasse, a trained and impartial mediator can facilitate dialogue and guide you toward an amicable solution.
