My approach to mediation is to first and foremost make sure the parties are comfortable with the process and understand the process; I like to learn about the parties and their claims by providing the parties a chance to explain their position including facts before starting negotiations. My approach is facilitative and I assist the parties to negotiate by helping create options for resolution and reasons for resolution.
