Real Solutions to Family and Business Disputes through Mediation

We’re at a place and time in our culture where family and business conflicts are on the rise.

You may find it so hard to get along in your family or business relationships that it seems hopeless, like your conflicts have no end in sight.

But I have good news: Solving your problems isn’t impossible.

You see, there are peaceful, productive ways to resolve conflict that don’t have to involve lengthy court battles, crushing legal expenses, strained relationships and immeasurable emotional distress.

I’m Leticia Smith—mediator and legal analyst. I’m here to help you go from frustrating and disruptive disputes to fair and satisfying conflict resolution.

 
What is Mediation and How Does it Work?

Mediation is a dispute resolution process that serves as an alternative to in-court litigation. A mediator is a neutral party who does not represent either side in the dispute.

 

In mediation, people having a dispute come together to talk about their issues and work to reach an agreement on how to resolve those issues in a way that feels fair to both sides.

 

A mediator facilitates and guides the conversation and helps control heated emotions to keep the discussion focused and moving in a productive direction.

 

The goal is to reach an agreement—or settlement—by the end of the session. Mediation agreements may be documented in a Points of Agreement report, legally binding contract, or Court Order drafted by the mediator and signed by all involved parties.
