Mediation is a voluntary and confidential way for parties to attempt to resolve a dispute with the assistance of a neutral mediator who is trained to help facilitate communication.
“As a mediator, my role is to inform the parties about the benefits of mediation and their role in the process, and provide them with a safe environment in which we can dig into the various issues and interests involved.My role is also to listen to the parties' concerns and desires, to act as a sounding board, to challenge their positions, and to provide them with additional factors and viewpoints to consider.I will push the parties to see all sides of an issue, while always remaining neutral and respectful.My role is also to facilitate communication between the parties, increase understanding on all sides, clarify misunderstandings, and foster creative thinking." Sara Kula, Esq.
Mediation can take place either before or after litigation has been initiated. Contact Sara Kula Law for more information about mediation services.
