Trust Your Instincts: Ultimately, trust your instincts and choose a mediator with whom you feel comfortable and confident. Effective mediation relies on a trusting and productive relationship between the mediator and the parties involved.
Engage the Chosen Mediator: Once you have selected a mediator, contact them to discuss the next steps, including scheduling sessions and discussing the mediation process. Be prepared to provide relevant information and documentation related to your dispute.
