Mediation for Neighbor Disputes

Mediation is particularly suited for resolving conflict among neighbors, since it is designed to address all aspects of a problem, including the interpersonal issues that a court would not be able to address. There may be underlying reasons for the conflict which, if resolved, will make for better relations between neighbors in the long run. Issues that can be mediated include boundary lines, nuisance noises or odors, violations of neighborhood covenants and conditions, encroachments, etc.  If a court were to declare one neighbor the “winner”, that might solve the surface problem, but could worsen long-term relations. In mediation, people can get creative about meeting as many of every person’s needs as possible so that everyone gets more of what is important to him/her.


The Delta Chi Fraternity at Cornell, and I, personally, have used Ms. Masson's services for a variety of situations over the past decade. We have always been impressed with the professional nature of her advice and the timeliness of the response. We would certainly recommend her services to anyone who needs them.
