Mediation Services

Robert B. Ingram brings to bear his thirty-four years of experience litigating and trying complex cases for Mediation Services. Ingram couples this unique qualification with the specialized training he received at the Mediation Workshop at Harvard Law School Program of Instruction for Lawyers with The Advanced Training in Mediation he obtained at the Center for Dispute Resolution in Washington D.C. Mr. Ingram's office is centrally located in San Rafael and offers an easy commute from Marin, Sonoma, Napa and Alameda counties.

Mediation is a process where the parties involved in a dispute meet with an impartial party who assists them in the negotiation of their differences. During mediation, the "decision power" rests totally and completely with the parties. The mediator does not make judgment or develop an opinion on the merits of the case. The mediator simply uses his/her litigation experience and works as a medium between the parties and attempts to bring them together by facilitating communication and guiding the process to avoid confrontation. The mediator will seek compromise from each side during the mediation process and bring the parties to an agreement they both feel comfortable with.

Mediation begins by defining the issues and determining the position and concerns of all of the involved parties.

This is followed by a separate conference between the mediator and each individual party or their counsel. This allows each side to make clear and expand upon their case and objectives in confidence.
Confidentiality is essential to resolving disputes and it is the mediator's job to develop trust between the parties to bring them together to resolve the dispute. The mediator will hold everything that is said in the various sessions confidential and will not utilize any information mentioned in the mediation in any other proceeding if mediation fails.
The Ingram Firm has the experience of "being in the trenches" of litigation to bring to bear to help resolve your case.
