What is Mediation?

Mediation involves an independent third party - a mediator - who helps both sides come to an agreement. Mediation is a flexible process that can be used to settle disputes in a whole range of situations such as family disputes, probate disputes, and personal injury matters.

What is Arbitration?

Arbitration is like a trial but less formal. In arbitration, two sides present their evidence to an arbitrator. The arbitrator decides who wins and who loses. An arbitrator does the job that a judge or jury would normally do in court.

Testimonials

“Cindy’s approach in solving a problem can be best described as follows – if she sees a 10 foot wall in front of her, she gets a 12 foot ladder. There is no conflict that she cannot resolve.”

Danny P.

"I am divorced, and one of the things I am tremendously grateful for is that my ex-husband and I made a decision to go through mediation. I knew a trial would drag on for years, would cost me everything, but worse, would be devastating for our four small children."

Lydia S.

“I work for a company that specializes in personal injury cases arising out of automobile accidents. Over the last year, I have personally had the opportunity to have Attorney Cartier mediate a number of cases. She has resolved them all.”

Tom J.

‘Ms. Cartier mediated our divorce.  She went beyond just mediating the legal issues and really worked to improve our communication skills to ensure that we would be able to co-parent our children. Over the year since the matter has ended, we get along better than when we are married and we owe it to Cindy.’
