Welcome to Greenville Mediation Center
Greenville Mediation Center offers tools and opportunity to empower parties in conflict to voluntarily resolve their disputes through a confidential process, guided by the mediator, who serves as a neutral third party. For more information about the role of a mediator, please see About GMC.
Litigation: When parties to a lawsuit communicate more directly with each other as to their concerns and goals, the result is often an end to the dispute through a mutually acceptable agreement. With the conflict behind them, the parties recover time, energy and resources available for other personal and/or business goals.
Mediation without litigation? Yes! Both individuals and businesses benefit from seeking a resolution of conflicts before a costly lawsuit is filed. Without the negative impact of filing a lawsuit, pre-litigation mediation creates an environment that is favorable to resolving the dispute, while improving the possibility of preserving important personal and/or business relationships and avoiding negative publicity.
Martha's Background and Experience: After devoting 22 years to resolving hundreds of disputes as in-house title insurance claims counsel, Martha transferred her conflict resolution skills and experience to the mediation process, which she enthusiastically endorses.
She has resolved hundreds of multi-state real estate and title disputes through direct negotiations, mediation and/or litigation management. While managing multi-state lawsuits, she participated in numerous mediations with veteran mediators and collaborated with defense counsel concerning all aspects of litigation, including strategies, legal issues, discovery, expert witnesses, and cost-benefit analysis of settlement vs. risks of trial. She has also negotiated divorce settlements and handled probate matters. In addition to mediation, Martha practices law with a focus on real estate.
