Our vision is for "mutual inclusion solutions" driven by our belief that participation in active solution communication aids in resolution to the conflict and dispute. Rather than have a judge and/or jury impose a solution, through the use of expensive lawyers, the best solution to our Conflict and Disputes is for parties to communicate and agree on a mutually benefitting solution and reach consensus with opposition to create win-win. We are COVID-19 friendly and can work for you ONLINE, IN PERSON OR BY TELEPHONE, with your safety and the safety of others 1st and foremost.


We do not charge Lawyer prices, have minimal deposits and collect the balance due when the services are completed. It is shown that clients in conflict dispute resolution programs can save money, keep confidentiality, control time involved in the solution, have less stress and anxiety and conclude issues and concerns more quickly than the legal system. In most cases our clients maintain a constructive relationship with the disagreeing party. We seek resolutions not extending the divisive nature of attorney involvement which costs the client more.
