Our vision for Conflict Dispute Resolution is for "mutual inclusion solutions" driven by our belief that participation in active communication aids in the solution to the conflict and dispute. Rather than have a judge and/or jury impose a solution, we as people have the best solution to our conflict and can reach consensus with our opposition if we are willing to work to create win-win.

We do not charge attorney-like fees. 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 and attorneys have available. 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.
