CEDRS is a unique mediation organization focusing on effective and rewarding dispute resolution in today’s uncertain and costly legal world. More than ever litigation, in both cost and stress to all parties concerned, is proving to be a poor alternative to the opportunity and ability to control one’s own satisfactory result to end a conflict.

Our mission is aimed at providing dispute resolution techniques in a peaceful and trusting environment in order to effectively promote settlement. Our neutrals are experienced mediators specialized in their field and their #1 Goal is to achieve a satisfactory result for all parties no matter how long it takes, or how difficult the obstacles.

Lawsuits and litigation are becoming more and more disappointing to those wanting justice, fairness, and their desire to be heard. It is taking so much longer to get your “day in court”, and the escalating costs and attorney’s fees almost prohibitive in nearly every case. Mediation is becoming the more civil means of legal dispute resolution, and CEDRS is in the forefront of this new era in conflict resolution.

A quote from Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, Retired Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court:
” Our system is too costly, too painful, too destructive, and too inefficient for really civilized people.”

The new efficient and effective model for conflict resolution is the mediation process. At CEDRS, our goal is to achieve trust, fairness, and compromise in every step of the mediation process so that the dispute may end and the parties move forward with their lives.
