What is Mediation?
Mediation is a voluntary process used to resolve disputes in a respectful, cooperative, and cost-effective manner. It is an alternative to traditional litigation, where a neutral third party (the mediator) facilitates communication between parties and helps them reach a mutually-satisfactory agreement. Mediation is a confidential process that allows parties to discuss and negotiate the terms of their agreement in an informal setting, and to craft creative solutions tailored to their individual needs. Mediation is often faster and less expensive than litigation, and allows parties to maintain control of the outcome.
What Our Clients Have To Say
Real Reviews By Real Clients
Tamara is one of the top mediators I have had the pleasure of dealing with. With 23 years of domestic practice, I have see my share. Tamara tackled a case headed for trial which I felt there
was no hope of settling without the bloodletting of a nasty court battle. Her sweet demeanor and can do attitude coaxed an entrenched party on her fifth attorney to a settlement my client could
only dream of before walking into Tamara’s office.
I was so relieved to have Meggan give me the details and the best approach for my situation. You were able to get my spouse to have control of the issues which helped move it along. I can’t
thank you enough for your help. I’m glad this chapter is closing. You did an amazing job!
I was very impressed with the skills of Christine Beck. She was very good at keeping each of us on the immediate task and not asking about or including irrelevant information. She could give
unbiased information and recommendations. She is an attorney who knows the law and is experienced in family law.
Tamara knows her way around resolution, which was huge for me. The timing was impeccable. The end result was more than could be expected. She assisted me in saving time and money in
my situation just based on her extensive knowledge. She is genuine and sensitive. I recommend her for men, women, single mothers or single fathers.
Thank you for your kindness and efficiency. We are over-the-top grateful for your assistance and wisdom as we traveled through an experience that was so difficult and foreign for us. We are at peace and satisfied that the agreements you helped us with are in the best interests of our babies and that in the future we will realize more and more how blessed we were to have you as our mediator.
“I could not have asked for a better service and experience regardless of the very complicated and difficult situation I was in. I would like to thank Tamara for the thorough and outstanding service she provided.”

Family Practice Areas
When important personal or business relationships are on the line, mediation is a natural choice over court proceedings. At Fackrell & McLean, we mediate conflict in many arenas:
By meeting with our specially trained and court-qualified Mediators, we are best able to assist you in negotiating and navigating the terms of a possible settlement.
Utilizing mediation keeps both parents involved and allows for questions to be answered, all while working towards an agreement which is best for both the child and the parents.
Our aim is to allow birth and adopting parents come together in a supportive environment to address the concerns regarding pre-existing or new contact agreements.
Introducing mediation into the estate-planning process gives estate planners a way to come to ethical decisions while avoiding separate discussion with each party.
Elder Care and Guardianship
Elder care is often an entire family matter. By introducing a mediator, it facilitates the needed discussion between multiple parties so the best interest of the family member is met.
Parent Teen Relationships
By promoting healthy communication between Parents and Teens about their issues through mediation, it builds the understanding needed in order to resolve these difficulties.
By utilizing a professional mediator when it comes to marital concerns, you are better able to work through your difficulties and issues in a safe and effective manner.
If you and your opposing party have attorneys, the attorneys will schedule the mediation. If you do not have an attorney, that means you are unrepresented, or pro se. In pro se cases, you and the opposing party need to agree upon and schedule a time for mediation.
When you make that decision to use a mediator, you want to feel comfort knowing you are in good hands. We hope the accomplishments listed below can assist in bringing about that peace of mind.
We have over 75 years of combined experience in the field of mediation. We are experts at what we do and it shows in the work we do.
We pride ourselves in being life long learners. Combining our years of College, Masters, and PhD schooling, we have over 40 years of combined education.
