We Are ADR
We make learning about dispute resolution engaging and fun!
What makes our training different is the caliber and knowledge of our trainers. Each lead trainer is a professor of conflict resolution, a practicing attorney and an active mediator working in the respective areas of law. Each co-trainer is an accomplished expert in their respective subject areas and many have written well respective books in their fields. Our combination of experience and unique perspectives give us the ability to provide participants with real-life examples, insight into how the courts system uses mediation, and instruction on how to effectively resolve conflict.
