Mediation — A Way for Everyone to Get What They Want
Mediation can be an excellent tool to deescalate an emotional situation. Many times, especially when private warrants are issued, a combination of time and intervention by a mediator can help a situation significantly. Mediation allows for all parties to sit down, express their side of the story, and discuss a way to resolve the issue. These resolutions range from agreeing to no longer contact the other person to paying for out of pocket expenses related to the incident (i.e. medical bills and/or property damage).
