MISSION STATEMENT

Legal Room offers collaborative approaches for parties seeking solutions to their family or civil conflicts. Its mediators empower parties to negotiate alternative resolutions to their disputes by facilitating the mediation process in a safe environment with integrity and respect. As neutral third parties, our mediators aim to provide practical conflict management skills useful in everyday interactions.

What is mediation?

Mediation is a voluntary conflict resolution process by which a neutral and impartial third party facilitates the negotiation process. As an extension of the negotiation process, mediation seeks to provide a forum for conflicting parties to engage effectively in problem solving practices to reach a mutually acceptable agreement. The unique aspect of mediation is that it is a party-driven approach to dispute resolution. Unlike litigation or other forms of dispute resolution, mediation allows conflicting parties to explore all the options based on their individual interests and needs in order to determine the best possible solution to their conflict.

The role of the mediator

The mediator’s role, as a neutral and impartial third party, is to guide the dispute resolution process. During the process, the mediator elicits information allowing parties to gain a greater understanding of each other’s perspectives and underlying needs. The goal of a facilitative mediator is to provide a safe and respectful atmosphere, thus empowering parties to focus on the future.
