Find a Mediator


Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) process in which a trained neutral mediator facilitates communication between the parties.  Without deciding the issues or imposing a solution on the parties, a mediator enables them to understand and reach a mutually agreeable resolution to their dispute.  It helps the parties understand and identify their needs, overlapping interests and any areas of agreement.

In Virginia using a mediation process is voluntary.  The mediation process is confidential and used in many proceedings.

Courts in Virginia offer a variety of dispute resolution services.  Some of these services may be available at no cost.  The Judicial Services Department of the state court administrator's office hosts a general directory of private providers.  They also offer a link to Resolution Virginia.  Your local court or local law library may offer more information about mediators in your area.
