Knight Mediation Services
Mission: Mediation is the art of building agreements with the assistance of a neutral third party. During mediation, the parties in dispute make the decisions themselves. The mediator is neutral and will not take sides. The mediation process respects and encourages self-determination by the parties. Unlike traditional litigation, which is based upon an adversarial, win-lose approach, mediation seeks a win-win solution by emphasizing consensus building and problem solving. It looks to the future relationship between the parties, focuses on what they both really want, and seeks to find common areas upon which to base an agreement that will work for them in the future. Over 80% of mediation cases are successful.
