Thank you for inquiring about how

ACCORD Mediation Services can

help you put to rest your individual


Our firm adheres to a client-centered philosophy that aims to put your

needs first.

For all prospective clients, we begin

the process with a confidential,

30-minute initial consultation with both parties together.  The purpose is to:

> Describe the mediation process

> Explain how mediation works with the          legal system

> Go over anticipated timelines and costs

> Determine whether mediation is right for     you

Of course, there is no charge and no obligation for this confidential, initial consultation.

The process is completely voluntary,

which means that you may withdraw

at any time during the process.

Business clients may find additional mediation services at ADDENDA Solutions division website.

If no mutually agreed upon terms can

be reached, you still have the court

process available to you as another

alternative.  Any agreement reached

during mediation, can still serve to

minimize those issues that you

decide to take to court.

Interestingly, national statistics show

that between 70% and 80% of mediation clients come to mutually agreed upon

terms, are more satisified with their

terms, and are more likely to adhere

to their agreements.

Since I founded ACCORD Mediation Services15 years ago, clients have come to us  from all over the State to discover their  own solutions by using the mediation process.
