Today, heavy court caseloads and rising legal costs have prompted many people to settle their legal disputes outside the courtroom through a process known as alternative dispute resolution (ADR). Mediators, also known as arbitrators and conciliators, guide the ADR process and help resolve conflicts between disputing parties. We facilitate negotiations and settlements as mediators between disputing parties, specializing in Patent, Copyright, Trademark, Bankruptcy (Mortgage Modification Mediation (MMM) Program), Contractual, Civil and Family Mediation by providing direction and encouragement, working collaboratively with the parties and finding creative ways to reach a mutual solution.

Harvard Law School:
Mediation as a method of dispute resolution has acquired a promising track record in the context of civil conflicts. In 2004, more than two-thirds, or 63 of 94, of the federal district courts offered some form of mediation program. Today mediation has become an essential, and sometimes even standard, part of many fields of law, particularly in family and employment law, and is spreading to other areas of law.
Criminal Justice Program:
Mediators are a less visible but essential part of the criminal justice system, working behind the scenes in out-of-court dispute resolution. In many ways, a mediator is like a less formal judge: mediators serve as an impartial party, overseeing private hearings outside of the court room.
