You have the ability to resolve issues without the exorbitant legal and court fees. When two or more people sit down in a neutral environment to discuss their issues and find a solution that is mutually agreeable, it is empowering and satisfying. The cost to mediate is incomparably less than legal and court fees. In the end, it is a better solution to ending conflict than any other means. 


Indira Gandhi said, “you can’t shake hands with a clenched fist”. Mediation allows you to unclench your fists. Although studies vary, most agree that on average 85-95% of mediations are settled out of court. Of those remaining, many settle within days or weeks prior to a scheduled court appearance. Most who experience Transformational Mediation emerge with a better understanding of effective “green” communication and develop conflict management skills to enhance their future professional and personal lives.
