Remote/Weekend/Evening mediation sessions are available. Individual/Private sessions are standard in my practice unless parties wish to mediate in a joint session conference. Sessions can also be held online or by telephone.

Project Mediation Pros’ approach to mediation is to promote an atmosphere that fosters respect, integrity, and collaboration. Each party involved in mediation plays a vital role in the process. Parties should feel that their contribution to the process is heard and considered. Mediation works when parties are provided an opportunity to contribute ideas and trust the process towards a successful agreement. Each case is different and should be handled in a manner that considers the unique details of your situation.
