- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Do you due diligence. A highly skilled and trained mediator, in most cases, will have a graduate or post-graduate training and at least ten (10) years experience in a field related to their niche. Since there is no regulation on mediation, you want to make sure who you chose will be qualified to do the job. This person does not have to be an attorney. In fact, attorneys, in most cases, are trained in the adversarial process and mediation should not be done in the same manner.
