How is mediation different?

In Mediation, the process is geared towards protecting the parties real “interests” and not necessarily their “position”. SERVICES

Position vs Interest

Mediation isolates and deals with the real issue or issues in dispute. The parties then collaborate to identify the available options and work together to attain a mutually satisfying resolution of the issue, or issues.SERVICES
