Mediation Services

Disputes happen. Minnesota law recognizes that it is preferable for disputing parties to settle their own disputes. Before any trial in a lawsuit, the courts will mandate that the disputing parties meet to try to settle their dispute by engaging a mutually agreeable neutral mediator to assist them in trying to reach their own resolution of their dispute.
