Request Mediation

 

**Due to COVID-19 related restrictions and delays we recommend you file your Request to Mediate online. Mailed Requests to Mediate will be delayed in processing as our physical office is not currently open. At present, in-person mediations may not be desirable or legally permitted in some areas, but almost all of our panel mediators support online mediations to allow for timely resolution of disputes. If the parties prefer an in-person mediation, they may still file and we will process the request and coordinate assignment to a mediator for a future in-person mediation.**
