Mediation

Mediation

I assist the mediating parties in clarifying issues, identifying options and exploring how the proposed solutions will work in their current and future situation.

As directed by the MN rules, practice standards and ethics, I maintain neutrality and impartiality, account for power imbalance, keep all communications confidential, arrange for separate meeting rooms for the mediating parties when necessary or requested, encourage the parties to seek professional advice when more information is needed and, encourage the parties to mediate with their attorneys present or available for consult.
