Very often families find themselves in conflict over differences, misunderstandings or confused perceptions. Family members become hurt, frustrated and angry and are unable to express their thoughts and feelings or are unable to listen effectively to other family members. With the help of a trained mediator, all family members can resolve their differences cooperatively.
Family Mediation offers a variety of solutions to often highly emotionally
charged family issues.
Workplace mediation creates a win-win solution that resolves the issue and transforms the continued working relationship from troubled and disruptive to successful and productive.
The foreclosure crisis has devastated homes all across America. Families out on the street without many choices but to shack up with other family members, their vehicles or shelters. Sadly many foreclosures could have been prevented through mediation. Our professionals have many success under their hat negotiating with financial institutions to find solutions that are workable for the homeowner and the bank. In many states mediation is required prior to a foreclosure sale to negotiate delinquent payments, loan modifications, current owners to remain in the home after the sale and other alternatives to foreclosure. In Vermont, the number of foreclosures declined due to mediation allowing homeowners an alternative to loss of their residence and as a result the entire housing market has become stable which has benefited all homeowners.
For many landlord problems, you’re almost always better off first trying to resolve disputes directly with your landlord, rather than go marching off to a lawyer’s office or small claims court. But if relations are so strained that no meeting seems possible, or you're unsuccessful negotiating a settlement with your landlord, consider mediation by a neutral, third-party mediator. Both negotiation and mediation will be cheaper than a lawsuit, usually less stressful, and often result in solutions that last.

An Agent is not required to be a lawyer.
