Why mediate?
Mediation is designed so that parties in a dispute can reach a fair outcome without the expense and time of a trial. A skilled negotiator helps each party look beyond "yes" or "no" stances to the underlying values their positions represent. Breakthroughs occur when a creative mediator suggests ways in which each party can retain and enhance value through subtle shifts in position. For more than 18 years, Ann has helped gridlocked parties reach mutually beneficial resolutions.
