Mediation is a structured, interactive approach to conflict resolution. When it comes to mediating a case, we aim to amicably and efficiently reach the best resolution for both parties. Unlike arguing a case in court in front of a judge, mediation offers the opportunity to reach a more uniquely tailored agreement. No matter how complex the matter might seem, we work to find the best path forward for everyone involved.

A great mediator is a great listener. Lydia facilitates the settlement process by meeting with both parties, understanding their respective needs, rights, and interests, and determining whether a settlement can be reached. In order to do this, Lydia employs a wide variety of techniques to guide the process in a constructive direction and to help both parties find their optimal solution.


There’s no replacement for skill and experience when it comes to mediation. With over 30 years of experience, Lydia is certified in arbitration, general civil mediation, domestic relations mediation, specialized domestic violence mediation and early neutral evaluation.
