Welcome To Accord Mediation Center
We help families, businesses, and communities transform disputes into solutions.
A trained and experienced mediator will guide you through a dialogue and process to determine and narrow issues for all parties, and make sure that all parties are heard. Then we will work with the parties to find a solution that is agreeable to all.
Your mediator will help you to identify a resolution tailored for your conflict. This process allows the parties to craft the solution to their conflict, rather than leaving the decision to a judge, who may be making a determination based only on a snapshot of the situation.
We bring calm and peace into stressful, conflict-ridden situations. Our goal is to understand the needs of our clients and guide them to mutually beneficial agreements.
Is Mediation The Right Choice For You?
The benefits of professional mediation are endless.
While typically costing a fraction of the cost for litigation or a lawsuit, mediation can help the parties to avoid the uncertainty inherent in a judicial outcome. This means both parties save significantly on expenses and are more likely to develop an agreement which is beneficial to all, and which leads to increased overall satisfaction.
Our work speaks for itself.
Our clients couldn’t agree more. We provide a broad range of mediation services.
An experienced mediator will assist and guide you through resolving all issues involved in a divorce, including children and parenting, equitable distribution, and support.
Committed to our community and promoting the peaceful resolution of disputes, our services are of benefit in neighborhood and community conflict as well.
Courtrooms are not family friendly. Address any issues your family may have in a neutral and completely confidential environment.
A conflict in a business can be detrimental, causing resentment and disruption. Mediated disputes take into account the needs of multiple business owners and their issues.
“I have worked with Ian and can describe his work with one word…integrity.“
“I co-mediated a divorce with Ian for clients who lived in New Jersey and worked in New York City. I can attest that in addition to being knowledgeable, Ian is very empathetic, in tune with people, understanding of human nature. All who would use his services as a mediator would be very well served. He is the best!”
“Ian Grodman was the court appointed mediator on a case that I was counsel for. I did not believe there was any chance of the case resolving. Ian facilitated settlement of the case in an afternoon. In my forty years of practice, Ian Grodman is one of the best I have ever seen.”
“My business partners and I contacted Ian to help us resolve a dispute surrounding the roles and responsibilities of our partnership. His calm guidance and pleasant demeanor immediately made us feel safe to say the things that needed to be said. During the mediation, Ian took attentive care to ensure that all our sides could be heard, and that we each had an opportunity to fully voice how we were feeling.His professionalism and sincerity were genuine and without his involvement we would not have been able to reach the place of open communication that we did. We may still have some bumps along our road in the future and would not hesitate to call Ian again to help facilitate getting us through.”
Why Should You Consider Mediation?
People who negotiate their own settlements often feel more satisfied than those who use appointed advocates, like lawyers, to represent their interests. Mediation negotiations can provide a forum for learning about, and exercising, personal power or influence.
Completely Customized Agreements
Settlements that are mediated are able to address both legal and extra-legal issues. Mediated agreements often cover procedural and psychological matters that are not necessarily ideal for legal determination. Parties will often tailor their settlement to their given situation.
On average, Mediation is much less expensive when contrasted to the expense of litigation or other forms of resolution.
These days it may well take more than a year, and far longer if any part of the matter is appealed. Mediation often provides a more efficient way of resolving disputes. When parties are ready to get on with the business of their lives, mediation is the most effective method of producing rapid results.

“The Courts of this country should not be the places where resolution of disputes begin.
They should be the places where disputes end after alternative methods of resolving disputes have been considered and tried.”
