How We Do It
Mediation is a process where a neutral third party facilitates a negotiation between parties to a dispute. The mediator is not aligned with a party, favors neither side and is uncommitted to any particular outcome or result. If a facilitative, joint session process is selected, the parties will at least start in the same room, moving to private meetings with the mediator only for specific purposes.
Arbitration is a voluntary undertaking by those involved in the dispute. Arbitration is a process of Alternate Dispute Resolution involving a single arbitrator or a panel of three arbitrators. Whether it is a panel of one or three, the decision, except in rare circumstances, is binding on the parties.
No two disputes are alike. No single model or style of mediation offers the best process in every case. It is important to match mediators and mediation models to each individual case, selecting an approach tailored to your individual needs and your specific concerns.
A mediator and an arbitrator are bound to follow the rules of ethics that govern the processes. It is the goal of Stempien Mediation to provide a comfortable, confidential environment for parties to resolve their differences, whatever the means of alternate dispute resolution your choose.
