LEARN HOW TO AVOID LITIGATION
ABOUT NEW YORK ADR
We offer private, efficient mediation services designed to help business and individuals find resolutions to their most pressing conflicts. We mediate with you and your spouse, partner, adversary, co-worker so that you can stop thinking about divorce, an estate dispute, commercial or employment dispute. As attorneys, we understand how challenging mediation can be for parties and for advocates.
When looking for a neutral you want a mediator who is knowledgeable as to substance and as to process. You want a neutral who is creative; a problem solver; someone who can move the process forward; help narrow the issues and - more than anything else - someone who can assist you to explore every possible avenue to resolution.
We have extensive training in mediation. We mediate in a variety of areas. We are mediation teachers and mentors, ourselves. We are tireless advocates for attorneys, for individuals and for mediating a dispute before, during or even after a litigation.

Work is significant to all of us for so many reasons. Work is money, esteem, stability and much more.

As mediators, we work with parties and counsel on employment disputes including discrimination, retaliation, wage/hour (FLSA, NYLL), severance and breach of contract issues. We offer confidential and efficient mediation and dispute resolution services so that all parties can get back to work.
