Confidential, impartial, and experienced mediation services

HBWV offers confidential, impartial, and experienced mediation services for parties involved in family, civil, business, probate, real estate, construction or contract disputes. Our attorneys are legally trained, skilled mediators that will help all parties reach an agreed settlement.

Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), a way of resolving disputes between two or more parties, in a confidential manner. The mediator acts as a neutral third party that assists the disputing parties in resolving conflicts with specialized communication and negotiation techniques, without dissolving their existing relationship.

All participants are encouraged to actively participate in the process.
