Mediation is a voluntary, confidential process aimed at assisting parties in finding a mutually agreeable resolution to their differences. A mediator is not a judge but rather assists the parties in a neutral manner in identifying the key issues of concern to them -- and helping them explore potential ideas and solutions which the parties may have for reaching a resolution. While each mediation is different, the process often can take place in a single session of one to two hours.
Joshua Mendes has devoted a long career to listening to people -- as a business journalist (at Fortune and CNN), as an investment analyst at Merrill Lynch, and now as a certified mediator -- overseeing over 70 mediations as well as lecturing on the topic. He currently serves as a volunteer mediator in New York City's Bronx Small Claims Court.
