Mediation is an approach to conflict resolution where the parties are given the opportunity to informally attempt to resolve their issues. Settlement negotiation between the parties is facilitated by a mediator. Mediation is a voluntary, non-binding and confidential process. This process allows for parties to addressed all issues that might be impeding any settlement from monetary issues to emotional issues.

Many parties do not want to go to court and to meet and resolve matters informally. There are many reasons why mediation is a preferred approach. Some of the main reasons are: high litigation costs, time consumption, and uncertain results. A benefit to mediation is a high potential for relationship preservation. An agreement between parties can in some cases preserve a relationship. Best of all, parties are in control of reaching any agreement.

Our mediators provide both private mediation and mediation ordered by local courts. Our Firm has two court approved mediators: Anthony E. Galyean and Kimberly A. Steffenson. Both are on the mediation panels for the Yuba County Superior Court and for the Butte County Superior Court.

Mediation can help to form an agreement that both parties will abide by and an agreement entered by a party is less likely to be broken than one forced on a party by the Court.
