How is Mediation Conducted

There are three methods of mediation.

What Happens in a Mediation?

There are three methods of mediation:

Telephone Conciliation: You do not meet face-to-face with the other person. The mediator talks to each of you separately by telephone to solve the dispute.

Face-to-Face Mediation: All parties meet in person with the mediator. We schedule the mediation at a time and location convenient for you.

Telephone Caucus: All parties are available via phone at the same time and the mediator talks to each party individually.

In all sessions, the mediator does the following:

  • Helps each of you understand the other person’s point-of-view.
  • Helps you focus on the problem.
  • Assists you in reaching a solution you are both comfortable with.
