Mediation Practice Areas include commercial, contract, securities, nonprofits, landlord/tenant disputes, small claims, neighbor disputes, juvenile cases.
Mediation provides a vehicle that enables disputants to resolve differences and continue a relationship, if required by the circumstances. On the other hand, peace circles, grounded in restorative justice philosophy, uses a circle process - each person in the circle has the opportunity to discuss how he was harmed and what would restore peace and safety to the community or his immediate environment. I am trained as circle keeper to facilitate peace circles.Request free Consultation
