I was very impressed with the mediation…
“Esther, I wanted to let you know I was very impressed with the mediation. You actually read all of the material, which believe it or not is not usually the case with some mediators. I also liked that you were very upfront with where our cases were strong/weak. Although this is something we usually know, you did not sugarcoat the deficiencies, and that also helps with my client when I am trying to get them to see that they have issues that are going to have to be dealt with. I have recommended you already to a number of people.”

What is the Mediation Process?
Mediation is an informal and flexible dispute resolution process. The mediator’s role is to guide the parties toward their own resolution. Through joint sessions and separate caucuses with parties, the mediator helps both sides define the issues clearly, understand each other's position and move closer to resolution.

What is a Mediator's Role?
A mediator’s role is to facilitate communication between the parties in conflict with a view to helping them reach a voluntary resolution to their dispute that is timely, fair and cost-effective. Although the mediator manages the meeting and is in charge of the proceedings, he/she should not impose solutions or decisions and has no power to force a settlement. A solution should only be reached by agreement between the parties. The parties are responsible for the ultimate resolution of the dispute. Furthermore, a mediator has no right or duty to provide legal advice to the parties even if he/she happens to be a lawyer. The parties should seek legal advice solely from their legal counsel. The mediator, however, may raise issues and help parties explore options.
