Mediation

In mediation (or conflict resolution), two or more parties involved in a dispute come together to try to find a fair and workable solution to their problem with the help of a neutral mediator who is trained in cooperative conflict resolution techniques. Should the disputing parties fail to come to an agreement, an arbitrator (arbiter) may become necessary. The arbitrator acts as a neutral third party who conducts a hearing between the disputants, then renders a final decision.

At LRT, Inc., we have an equal responsibility to assist both sides of the conflict, and do not favor the interests of one party over the other. For more than 20 years, we have helped divorcing couples, families in conflict, neighbors with disputes, and various business-employment problems to:

  • define their conflict
  • decide what the issues are
  • talk about various solutions
  • promote fairness
  • consider the impact of possible resolution
  • reach a mutual agreement

It is important to note that mediation is NOT a form of therapy; rather, it is intended to resolve practical (not emotional) issues. Each party has complete decision-making power and cannot have any judgment imposed on him or her.
