Divorce and Superior Court Mediation Services


Mediation is one form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) that has been proven to be an efficient tool to resolve disputes for lawyers and their clients throughout the judicial system. It is a cost effective tool for resolving conflicts in nearly every area of law. To have a productive mediation, it is imperative that your mediator be experienced in the area of law in which your case resides.

Whether your mediation is court ordered or you perceive your case is ripe for settlement, our mediators will skillfully determine the parties’ positions and help craft creative solutions with which your clients will find satisfaction. With the right negotiators, even the most complex and difficult cases can find resolution through mediation.
