"During my twenty years of practicing law, I witnessed the time, money, and emotional energy exhausted in litigation. When folks create their own solution in a private mediation, they usually feel better, save time and money, and the resolution lasts. Mediation helps people engage in meaningful and constructive conversations."
-Sherry Ann Bruckner, Civil and Family Mediator
