DMS' Role

Our role at DMS is to coordinate the resolution of disputes from intake to closing. We provide education and information on alternative dispute resolution (ADR) options, obtain agreements to use an ADR option to resolve the conflict, schedule and confirm the date of the session, assist in the selection of neutral third-party experts (conciliator, mediator, or arbitrator), and conduct the session in facilities conducive to settlement. DMS is committed to providing a constructive process for individuals and organizations in conflict.


Why DMS?

At DMS, we make it our priority to provide the highest level of community care. Client surveys reflect this and speak to our success. Ninety percent of our clients express high levels of satisfaction with our services. Ninety two percent tell us they believe their cases would have gone to trial without DMS assistance.
