Over the course of a typical 2 hour mediation, mediators lead disputing parties through a discussion and help them develop their own agreement. Everyone gets heard without interruption, in a safe comfortable setting. Although most mediations end in agreement, the option of litigation is still open to disputing parties if they are not satisfied with the results.
The Dispute Resolution Center has helped thousands of people achieve satisfactory results and avoid costly litigation through mediation.
The DRC will not mediate disputes which involve the use of threat or violence or in situations where drug and alcohol abuse or mental illness are part of the problem.
