Why Choose Us?

We understand You.

The mediation team at Dispute Resolution Center have several lifetimes of combined experience to aid our clients. There’s not much we haven’t seen, heard about, or helped people resolve.

We meet you where you are.

The goal of mediation, and dispute resolution in general, is to help you find agreements on your own. A mediator facilitates open dialogue while helping reframe your viewpoints to each other in ways that are often easier to understand, or sometimes just sound different or better coming from someone else. 

We are available.

Rarely can a client not get ahold of a mediator in our office if they need one. If your mediator is not available, our staff or another mediator can almost always get you an answer if you have a question.
