Impartial And Devoted To Resolution

It is the philosophy of Attorneys Mediation Services LLC that mediation is the most successful and equitable form of alternative dispute resolution available to the legal community. This requires a combination of legal experience, impartiality, communications skills and knowledge of the subject in process. Mediation, while permitting the lawyers to function as advocates on behalf of their clients, affords the parties the opportunity to play a meaningful, significant role in attempting to resolve their dispute. Even when a case does not settle, the mediation process can lay the groundwork for future productive discussions regarding resolution.


“The obligation of our profession is, or has been thought to be, to serve as healers of human conflicts. To fulfill our traditional obligations means that we should provide mechanisms that can produce an acceptable result in the shortest possible time, with the least possible expense and with a minimum of stress on the participants. That is what justice is all about.” U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger, in his Annual Report on the State of the Judiciary, January 24, 1982.
