    Mid-Hudson Valley Mediation Center

The mission of MH Mediation is to assist people in conflict to resolve their disputes and reach a mutually acceptable agreement without having to rely upon third parties to make decisions for them. Through an exploration of the facts and the parties’ interests, we are generally able to formulate a mutually acceptable solution, one that is consistent with the values of the individuals and that meets their individual interests.
