Common Ground Mediation
My approach as a mediator is to help the parties explore all their options and the consequences of their choices. My role is to be the balance wheel, listening carefully, making sure each party has their say and is heard by the other. I structure the “process” of the mediation; the parties are in control of the decisions.
As the mediator, I do not represent either party as a lawyer. However, because of my legal training I can draft the legal agreement that will be binding on the parties and can be adopted by a court. I advise each party to consult with an attorney or other relevant professional, such as an accountant, at any point in the mediation, and especially prior to signing any agreement.
