When we suit up for the battle of litigation, each side operates on a group of facts. The reality is these facts to the mind of each party are assumptions made during the course of the preparation for this battle.
If we take the time to look at these facts/assumptions through the eyes of a neutral, we find that perhaps our understanding was grounded in our reaction rather than some objective view. A neutral can help us see how our point of view through our protective helmet might not be quite as clear as we thought.
A neutral can offer a broader perspective on conflict. Neutrals, people who don’t know us and have not interest in the litigation battle, make observations which can shift how we see the world. Perhaps, the neutral can shed insight into how a judge might see our conflict. That insight could reframe how we see our battle and perhaps aid in finding resolution.
