Guardianship/Eldercare Mediation
Dear Robert Grey, I was impressed with your article on Mediation of Guardianship and Elder Law cases and agree with much of what you say. I too practice in this area (central New Jersey) and am focusing more and more on mediation as a method of resolving these conflicts. I have a partner and an associate who are also mediators. I saw a comment by another attorney back in 2004 inquiring about setting up a network of mediators involved in these cases. Do you know whether that was every started? If so, I would like to be part of that network. If not, perhaps we can revisit that idea. Thanks for your article and I look forward to hearing back from you.

Network of Eldercare Mediators?
Dear Eldercare Mediator: Are you interested in forming a formal or informal network of Eldercare Mediators? If so, please respond to this email, noting your preference: 1. Informal Network: Share information about Eldercare Mediation books, articles, training seminars, contracts to mediate, evaluations, and "peace stories" by email. 2. Formal Network: The above, plus perhaps have a Web listing of Eldercare Mediators and a Website. Also, if there is a good response, we will need a volunteer to coordinate this Eldercare Mediator Network. Interested? Please forward this email to others who provide Eldercare Mediation. Thanks! Cordially, Janet E. Mitchell, J.D., Eldercare Mediator Family and Civil Mediator, and Mediation Trainer, Midwest Mediation Training Center
