“ I would use mediation again. It was informative, and the mediator was excellent. We were able to talk things out rationally. My anger diminished, and I was able to look at things in a different way. It took lots of hard work, but we reached an agreement!”— Mediation participant

​“ Money is often just one of several underlying concerns that parties have in a given conflict. In my experience, people have been able to reach meaningful and sustainable agreements only by fully satisfying all of their interests, many of which are non-monetary.”— Audrey Lee, Volunteer Mediator
