Common Ground Mediation
Jillian Landis and John Plummer
"Peace is not the absence of conflict, but rather, the ability to resolve conflict without violence."
- C.T. Lawrence Butler
As mediators, Jillian and her co-mediator John believe conflicts can be approached through finding common ground, instead of fighting a bloody battle of differences in court. Mediation offers a safe place to negotiate and to work out difficult, seemingly irreconcilable positions. In mediation, salvaging relationships and working toward solutions with dignity and equality, is the goal. Sometimes, conflict can become so emotionally heated, it becomes impossible to participate in a rational conversation, without a little guidance. Mediation offers renewed opportunities to solve life's disagreements without the intervention of the courts.
