Alternative dispute resolution is the use of mediation that enables people to reach a mutually agreeable solution to their conflict with the assistance of a neutral mediator. Mediators are not judges. They make no decisions for the parties. A mediator helps parties realize and explain their needs, clarify issues, explore solutions and negotiate an agreement. The purpose of mediation is to help parties find a solution that will work for them.
