Most of WIN's mediations are performed by its Senior Mediator, Bob O'Donnell. Bob has been mediating since 1984 and has mediated hundreds of cases. He uses a collaborative approach in most of his mediations, focusing on improving the communication and relationships among the parties and helping them to move off of positions and understand their own and the other party's underlying and motivating interests to come up with a true resolution of the dispute so that the parties feel good about the process, themselves, the other party, and the agreement reached. He is the creator of this Collaborative WIN Process, which he has taught to thousands of people across the nation and around the world, and is a recognized trainer of mediators.

Please Note: Disputes which are not resolved continue to fester and escalate. The longer you wait to mediate, the more difficult and time consuming a mediation will be. You can mediate at any time for any dispute, but the sooner you initiate a mediation the quicker and more successful it can be. Don't hesitiate to call for a free mediation consultation on your dispute. Call as soon as you can.
