New to Mediation?

 

One of the best official definitions of mediation is in the US Uniform Mediation Act:

"Mediation means any process in which a mediator facilitates communication and negotiation between parties to assist them in reaching a voluntary agreement..."

Mediation is often referred to as "ADR" - alternative dispute resolution.
