     Mediation is a non-binding process in which an impartial mediator helps parties reach a mutually acceptable settlement.  The process is less formal and usually less expensive then other methods of dispute resolution.

     Mediation is extremely popular because the parties control the terms of any agreed settlement.   All communications are confidential and not subject to disclosure.

      The manner in which a mediation session is conducted varies with the mediator selected.   Some mediators prefer to start the process with a joint session with the parties exchanging their viewpoints of the case.  Others prefer to start with private meetings.  Although Gary Hall will encourage parties to meet in a joint session if it will help meaningful communication and settle the case, he usually begins a mediation session by meeting privately with each party.

     During these meetings, the parties will be encouraged to talk about their case.  These private discussions will aid the mediator and the parties in identifying the issues of conflict, clarifying points of agreement and exploring areas of potential compromise and settlement.
