Mediation is a non-binding dispute resolution process in which an impartial third party (the mediator) facilitates negotiations among the parties to help them reach a mutually acceptable and voluntary settlement. The major distinction between mediation and arbitration is that, unlike an arbitrator, a mediator does not make a decision about the outcome of the case. Mediation allows the parties the opportunity to communicate their feelings, clear up misunderstandings, identify interests and options, find areas of agreement, and, ultimately, incorporate these areas into solutions devised by the parties themselves without the court determining the matter based on law or the exact value of the case. This process has been adopted by many municipalities in the State of New Jersey. It is especially helpful in family and neighborhood disputes. We are experienced in this process.
