While our pri­mary ser­vices are Mediation and Facilitation and sim­i­lar ser­vices, each client is unique and has dis­tinc­tive needs which require dif­fer­ent approaches to resolv­ing the legal and other con­flict issues he or she is fac­ing. To that end, Oregon Mediation & Dispute Services pro­vides a con­tin­uum of options for help­ing clients address their legal prob­lems that allow the client to be the pri­mary dri­ver in the process and/​or to rep­re­sent them­selves in the court sys­tem.
