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.


As a financial planner with a focus on trust and estate planning, I find that clients I have referred to Robin are very satisfied with her ability to listen and develop plans that meet their needs. This together with prompt action on their documents allows me to give a very strong recommendation for her.
