If Peace Is A Forest, Mediation and Collaborative Law Are Sister Trees

By Laura Melton Tucker, December 31st, 2010

On this last day of the year it feels natural to consider trends and changes in the mediation world as we look forward to 2011. I am seeing changes in my practice, and the mediation profession as a whole. More of my clients are seeking mediation on their own volition, without a court order to mediate. Some are anticipating divorce, and want to have a preliminary conversation to begin the process. For them, mediation is an opportunity to make lists, set priorities, and check in with one another in order to grow more focused, calm and clear.
