Resolving Conflicts Through The Process Of Mediation
Like collaborative law, mediation is a collaborative, rather than adversarial approach to problem-solving. A mediator is a neutral facilitator aiding both parties to reach comprehensive and enduring agreements. The parties may or may not have attorneys representing them during the mediation process.

How Does The Mediation Process Work?
As a mediator, Linda creates a safe and neutral environment where the parties are free to talk. She assists the parties with identifying their respective needs and priorities. A process for information gathering, including use of neutral experts, if necessary, is agreed upon. Linda then works with the parties to generate a wide range of options and possible solutions to disputed issues, and she facilitates a discussion about the pros and cons of each. She is skilled at using evaluative as well as facilitative techniques to bring about agreement.
Throughout the mediation process Linda monitors the dynamics between the parties to ensure that each is empowered to move forward at each stage of the process.
