- Mediation is a practical, informal method of resolving a dispute in which a trained mediator helps disputing parties discuss their concerns and, if possible, reach a voluntary agreement.
- Mediators do not take sides or make arbitrary decisions. Instead, the mediator encourages communication between the parties, and assists them in working together to find resolution for their conflict.
- Mediators do not give legal advice.
- Mediation is always confidential, private, and voluntary.
- Mediation with trained mediators can help parties avoid the high cost of litigation.
