Mediation Solutions is the first company in East Central Illinois dedicated solely to mediation. Mediation Solutions offers mediation services for all types of disputes from bankruptcy cases, business disputes, employment problems, landlord-tenant disputes, to divorce and even probate or personal injuries.
Mediation Solutions can help its clients resolve most disputes in a single day. Lawsuits take years, put strangers in the driver’s seat and can be very costly. Mediation keeps the parties in control, is cost effective, and is invariably faster than filing a lawsuit. In some cases, the cost of the entire mediation can be within $200.00 of the cost of filing the law suit.
Occasionally, disputes cannot be fully resolved by mediation. In those cases, mediation can narrow the question that must be handled by a court so that it reduces the duration and expense of litigation.
Mediation Solutions was created by Dan and Helen Pope to fill a need in the East Central Illinois area, where law firms abound, but no one was offering mediation solutions for folks who weren’t already involved with lawyers and/or involved in lawsuits that had already taken years. Both Dan and Helen are Certified Professional Mediators with over 15 years of mediation experience.
If you have a dispute with someone, we can help.
