Mediation is a form of dispute resolution that attempts to resolve a legal dispute with the participation of a third party (mediator).
Mediation, when successful, can reduce legal costs and serve to reduce the animosity between the parties to create a more peaceful relationship going forward. Attorney Renee Fontaine is a Certified Transformative Mediator.
This form of mediation stresses empowerment and recognition. It focuses on defining the issues and allows each party to see the conflict from the other party’s perspective. This serves to aid in resolution, thereby saving each party future legal costs.
