peaceful solutions to difficult situations

Using Mediation to Solve Community Disputes

Mediation Instead of Litigation to Solve Community Disputes

Fences don’t always make good neighbors. When disputes arise between neighbors, instead of calling the police, it is valuable to consider the mediation alternative. Engaging in mediation lowers the tension and often turns a hostile relationship into a friendly one.

Mediation Instead of Litigation to Solve Business Disputes

When there is a dispute over an invoice from a vendor or a member of the building trade or other supplier of services, mediation often brings an agreement as to the amount owed which satisfies both sides and allows for the parties to continue to do business with each other, a win/win situation.

Mediation Can Resolve Many Types of Disagreements
Any dispute between two parties involving day to day events is capable of being mediated and allows for a resolution that brings peace to a situation that starts out as hostile and tense. Waring parties find that resolving these disputes is a welcome alternative to confrontational approaches.
