Mediation vs. Litigation

Avoid expensive legal fees and litigation that seems to drag on with no end in sight.  Resolve your legal dispute quickly and efficiently without the hassle of the complex legal system.


Mediation can protect ongoing business and personal relationships, eliminate impasses in negotiation lending to quick resolution of differences, and diffuse emotionalism in family court matters such as divorce and child custody negotiation. 


Our  professional mediator is an experienced attorney, judge, juvenile officer, and social worker. He has provided alternative dispute resolution services in the Southwest Missouri region since 2003.


Put simply, for all disputes, mediation is less expensive than litigation and "just makes sense".
