Mediation & Arbitration Services
Dispute Resolution
      Cost Effective

Getting Started!

Mediation services are provided to promote dispute resolution.  We do NOT provide legal services.  We do not typically take clients who are not represented by Counsel.  There are reasons for this, please see 3.3 Using a Lawyer

If you are trying to complete the Family Law Dissolution process without attorneys, and agree to all aspects of the dissolution, you can go to and follow their links for "Self Help."  We do not provide scrivener services for filling out court orders or forms.

If you are represented by counsel, your attorney's office will contact our office for our available dates.  These dates will be circulated amongst all parties and counsel until a date is chosen that works for everyone.

We only set one matter per day, so that you have as much time as you need to feel comfortable with your decisions and agreements.

Once a date is confirmed by our office by email, a deposit will be due in 7 days, such date will be outlined in the confirmation email.  The deposit is used as a prepayment of hours used, and any amount not used will be refunded.  There is a cancellation fee however, if the date is cancelled anytime after 24 hours from the time the confirmation email is sent.  We take credit cards and personal checks.  A credit card number can be called into the phone number listed below.
