CT Mediators

Why Mediate?

Mediation is when individuals choose a neutral third party to help resolve conflicts and disputes. Through this process, individuals create solutions pertaining to their particular circumstances and needs. Mediation allows for a more hands-on approach in shaping results for your family .

People choose mediation because it is cost effective—significantly less expensive than litigating in court.  People also choose mediation because it allows for people to have more say in outcomes—giving them more power and control. Mediation is less stressful and often times quicker.
