Mediation is a process in which a neutral person or persons facilitate
communication and negotiations between disputing parties to assist them in
reaching a mutually acceptable agreement, a reconciliation, or a better
understanding of each participants' interests, needs, values and options.
- Just Solutions provides co-mediators to ensure gender and diversity
balance at no extra cost to you.
- All mediators have a minimum of 24 hours of mediation training.
- We use a sliding fee scale for divorce and child custody cases.
- Our mediators represent a broad spectrum of work experiences—law,
business, counseling/therapy, human resource management, government, social
work and education.
Solutions mediators focus on providing parties with process expertise (as
opposed to case evaluation). This approach allocates a significant amount of
responsibility to the parties for identifying desired outcomes and developing
options for achieving those outcomes, with the mediator being used as a
sounding board and "reality tester."
