About Pax Mediation
Pax Mediation was founded in 2018 as a response to a legal system not working for everyone. Inspired by the belief that mediation is a necessary service to a healthy society, the founders took the initiative to open an alternative to litigation, offering the the expertise of qualified professionals with proven experience.
Pax Mediation is dedicated to being part of the solution. By finding the correct mediation approach for you — whether it be a direct one-on-one approach or something different — we can work together to make life better for everyone involved.
We reach resolution through discussion focused on the needs of both parties. Litigation can last months or even years and cost a fortune over time. Our methodology centers on discussion about the issues at hand to reach mutual agreement driven by the needs of both parties. When both parties are willing to give their focused attention and put genuine thought into why there is conflict, we can help guide them to real and lasting resolution.
Mediation process empowers parties to create their solution. The mediation process is empowering and gives more control over the outcome to the parties themselves. As people begin to break down barriers, we see their thinking transform. This focused experience, helps parties shift from a mindset of polarization to one of convergence. Our team of experienced professionals work with them to find lasting solutions.
