Mediation is a facilitated negotiation by which a neutral third party, the mediator, assists individuals in reaching a mutually satisfactory resolution of a dispute. In fact, many situations where people believe they need a court decision can be more easily and sensibly resolved through mediation. The goal of the process is for the individuals involved in the dispute to arrive at a mutually acceptable resolution, rather than to rely on a disinterested person who knows little about the history of the dispute and the relationship between the individuals, like a judge. The beauty of mediation is the empowerment of the individuals and the ability to vent and to be heard in a non-judgmental forum.
When choosing mediation as an alternative to litigation, it is critical to select a mediator who is patient, compassionate, non-judgmental and experienced in the subject matter of the dispute along with well trained. Nina Weiss is unique in this regard having trained under the auspices of the prominent Conflict Resolution and Alternative Dispute Resolution program while a student at Fordham Law School. This intensive training, both coursework and clinical, has equipped Nina Weiss to serve as an effective yet also compassionate mediator.
