“Providing Conflict Solutions for all Minnesotans”

Mediation is a conversation between two or more people who disagree, facilitated by one or more trained mediators. The conversation is informal and all participants are given time to talk about their concerns. Decision-making remains with the participants. Mediation is voluntary, confidential and it works.
Mediation is an alternative to going to court. Not all cases are appropriate for mediation. But most disputes can be settled using time tested mediation techniques that allow both parties to decide the outcome that works best for them collectively and individually.
