Why it Works

Mediation works because each party involved is fully heard. The parties’ concerns and needs are addressed and met through the settlement agreement they reach. It is their own agreement, not one created or imposed on them by others. Therefore, it is much more likely to be a lasting settlement than if imposed by a court, hearing officer or arbitrator. We like to think of this as developing a do-able and durable agreement.
