Mediation Centers
  Benefits and Limitations
  • Mediation is private and confidential, to the extent you desire, be that by statute, contract, rules of evidence or privilege.
  • What is said by the parties during mediation sessions is not part of any public record.
  • Mediation dialogues and all materials developed for a mediation are not admissible in any subsequent court or contested proceedings, except for the finalized and signed mediated agreement for enforcement purposes.

  • Mediators assist on building understanding, by creating a courteous climate where each person can be heard and where considerate decisions can be made.  Mediators cannot testify in court cases or be legal representatives.
Mediation is typically more diplomatic, achieving resolutions that commonly save time, money, and conclude peacefully
