What is Mediation?

Mediation is a process where two or more people involved in a dispute meet with a neutral mediator to try to find a solution to a problem. The mediator is not acting as an attorney and cannot give legal advice. The mediator does not decide who is right or wrong or impose a solution s/he chooses. Your mediator will lead you through a conversation intended to help you and the other party develop an agreement that will work for both of you. An agreement signed in mediation is considered a legal contract.
