The Power of Empowering Neutrality

Dispute Resolution Services are processes you can use to resolve a case, dispute or conflict, and can also be alternatives to having a court, whether by judge or jury, or other institutions, resolve the cause of action or claim arising from your dispute.

On a continuum from consensual to adversarial, Negotiation followed by Mediation are the most consensual and Arbitration followed by Litigation are the most adversarial. The more consensual the process, the more control you have, and the more adversarial the process, the less control you have.

Dispute Resolution Services such as Negotiation and Mediation are an appealing alternative to Arbitration and Litigation due to their more consensual and less adversarial nature, their tendency to preserve rather than destroy relationships, their capacity to optimize your control, their ability to be tailored specifically to the parties, and their likelihood of costing you less time, energy and money. In some dispute resolution processes, you are not required to have an attorney to participate, but when a court has ordered that you participate in a dispute resolution process, attorneys often participate either as your advocate or counselor.

Negotiation and Mediation are also an appealing complement to Arbitration and Litigation, not only due to the same reasons that they are an appealing alternative, but also because, during Negotiation or Mediation, you and the other party can gauge whether your dispute resolution process is likely to succeed or whether another process is more viable. Both Negotiation and Mediation are problem-solving processes that can enable you and the other party to dialogue effectively to better understand yourselves, each other, and your goals in the process. Not only can this communication and clarity be beneficial should you and the other party later decide to use a different dispute resolution process, but just agreeing to participate in Negotiation or Mediation alone can be a crucial step towards peaceful resolution.

I guide people in dispute or conflict, with empowering neutrality, so that they can achieve a peaceful resolution. While the confidential and voluntary aspects of Negotiation and Mediation are empowering to parties in dispute, my neutrality and impartiality as a professional Negotiator or Mediator and neutral third person utilizing facilitative and transformative techniques combined with critical thinking tools enhances that empowering effect on the parties and their dispute resolution process. I empower you and the other party through professional preparation and powerful dispute resolution platforms which enable you to resolve your dispute in a collaborative, consensual, confidential and informed manner. Moreover, my client preparation process not only prepares you and the other party to resolve your dispute, but should you and the other party decide after engaging in Negotiation or Mediation to use a different dispute resolution process, you will enter that process better prepared.
