Civil Mediation

Braverman Mediation & Consulting offers Alternative Dispute Remedies that help shield businesses and individuals from potentially time consuming and expensive disputes.

Mediation is one alternative dispute remedy that can be selected by litigants, attorneys and/or the courts which enables the parties in dispute to benefit from a neutral evaluator whose only function is to help facilitate an agreed upon resolution that is ultimately written down and signed by the parties. Other neutral evaluation services are also available.

Braverman Mediation & Consulting has extensive experience in conflict resolution and works closely with the courts, self-represented litigants and attorneys in providing effective resolution services on a sliding scale/fee to fit the case basis. Braverman Mediation & Consulting enables the parties to take charge of their case and, thus, control their costs and their potential exposure.

We participate in several volunteer mediation panels associated with the Superior Courts.
