Mediation is a conflict resolution process designed to assist parties in reaching an agreement of a dispute. As an alternative to traditional litigation, mediation is private, voluntary, informal, confidential and non-binding.
The mediator is a neutral third party who facilitates negotiation and assists the parties in reaching a settlement and/or agreement. However, it is the parties themselves who decide whether an agreement is reached.
At Brookhart Law & Mediation, we believe that the hallmarks of a successful mediation include the three “C’s” of candor, cooperation and confidentiality on the part of the mediator and the parties involved. Our goal is to arrive at an agreed upon resolution of the dispute that is satisfactory to all involved, saving everyone time, money and emotional aggravation.
