A NEUTRAL FACILITATOR
Mediation with Amanda Chapman
Litigation through the court system can be a slow, expensive and often stressful process. As an alternative, mediation involves the use of a third party mediator to assist the parties in reaching a mutual settlement of a dispute.
Mediation can be a cost-effective dispute resolution process. It allows the parties to be creative in the solution to the dispute which, if resolved in court, might otherwise follow more rigid legal rules and a more timely, costly process. In contrast, private arbitration involves an adjudication of the dispute by a third party arbitrator outside of the usual court processes.
As a mediator, Amanda Chapman becomes a neutral facilitator, not taking sides, not giving legal advice, and not making decisions. She simply neutralizes the air and guides discussions so that the parties involved are able to explore the issues at hand and find sensible options to resolve their conflict.

“Sometimes if you can just get them talking…”
Mediation is an effective form of dispute resolution. Through the mediation process, the parties who are in conflict work through their problem together, with the guidance of a highly qualified facilitator—at Chapman Law, that is Amanda. In her role as mediator, Amanda does not offer judgement and does not intervene in the decision-making process. She simply provides a neutralized environment for the parties to be heard by one another, so they can gain an understanding of where the other is coming from. The parties work together to determine what is important, and they resolve the issue at hand on their own.
