Mediation Private, Confidential, Flexable , Informal

Mediation is private and confidential, flexible and informal.

Typically, it is concluded expeditiously at moderate
cost. The subject matter can be complex or simple, the
stakes large or small, the number of parties few or many.

The process typically is far less adversarial than litigation
or arbitration, and therefore less disruptive of business

Since other options are not foreclosed if
mediation should fail, entering into a mediation process
presents few risks.

Frequently cited advantages of mediation include:

• Substantial cost savings
• Promptness of resolution
• Creative, business-driven solutions
• Control over the outcome
• Preservation of business relationships
• Privacy and confidentiality

In 2009, as a Mediator apart of our job was viewing conflicts in various stages, many of those conflicts were resolved by listening to one another in a neutral setting.

Santa is a reminder of the joy of life, the sprit and kindness of the season.

As we approach 2010, Santa will be a reminder that peace is possible and in troubled times the spirit of Santa should guide each of us beyond this Christmas day of 2009.

Holiday Foreclosure Suspension


Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will suspend foreclosure evictions from December 19, 2009 through January 3, 2010. To help struggling families over the holidays, both owner-occupants and tenants living in properties foreclosed upon by Fannie Mae will not be evicted. Freddie Mac's suspension of evictions will be limited to properties up to four units.

In a similar move, Citigroup Inc. will suspend foreclosure sales and evictions for 30 days through January 17, 2010 for loans it owns. Citigroup's foreclosure moratorium, however, does not extend to loans it services on behalf of other investors. Given these developments, other lenders may follow suit, so check with the lender if appropriate.
