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 States’ or Provinces’ 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.
