How do I know that a Mediator has the expertise to handle my unique problem?

The subject matter of the dispute is not the critical issue for choosing an effective Mediator. A well trained and experienced Mediator will be able to get to the real interests of the parties. This is much more important to a successful outcome in a Mediation process. Experienced Mediators have many resources and colleagues available to assist in overcoming particular technical difficulties presented in the dispute.
