Mediation & Conflict Resolution Services

TAKE YOUR POWER BACK FROM LITIGATION THROUGH MEDIATION
Mediation is a structured process in which parties discuss their dispute with a trained and impartial third person. Our goal is to assist you in reaching a mutually agreeable decision whether your case is pending in court or not. And although we have no power to decide your case, our mediators work towards helping both parties decide what’s best for them. The courts may not give you that type of freedom
WHY CHOOSE THE PEACE OF MEDIATION?
Some attorneys charge flat fees; others charge by the hour. But on average, litigation costs in 2018 are $10,000 to $100,000 including attorney’s fees, court costs and, in some cases, costs for expert witnesses. Mediation costs are, instead, affordable.
Being in a courtroom can feel like a fishbowl. Issues resolved with us will not be made public.
Difficult Case? No Problem
Litigation is never fun, especially in cases involving divorce, custody issues and the elderly. Our mediators are skilled in handling individuals or groups involving safety concerns, power imbalances, or cognitive abnormalities.
Waiting for your turn in court can be 6 months or more in some districts. Disputes resolved in mediation (even partially) reduce the wait.
Because we don’t take sides, everyone can be heard (including kids). Our goal is to use what you have right now to come to an agreement that you need.
Tailored to Your Needs
If a specialist is needed to assist you in reaching an agreement, we can bring one in.
Court-ordered mediation settlements average 20%. Private mediation settlements average 75%. Either way, you can reduce your court costs and attorney fees through mediation.
What You Say Matters
You have a say. This is especially important for the elderly and children involved in litigation. We will take the time to hear what you have to say either in a joint session or in a private session away from the other party. Judges and attorneys don’t always have that kind of time.
