Year End 2018 - new year 2019
As 2018 has ended and 2019 has begun, we are pleased to post this Thank You Note / End of Year Recap / Happy New Year Greeting.
First and foremost, Thank You for the opportunity to be of service to you and your clients this past year. We have enjoyed working with you and we very much appreciate your trust and confidence in us and in our services.
In 2018, we welcomed two new members to our team: Doug McQuiston, Esq. joined us as our first Panel Mediator; also, Mikaela Cail came on board as our new Case Manager. With both Doug and Mikaela in the mix, we have formulated a top quality team available to help you and your clients resolve your cases even more efficiently and expeditiously.
Looking ahead, in 2019, we will be marking Steve Clymer's 25th year of "Providing ADR Services at Our Offices or Yours."
With Great Appreciation, Steve Clymer, Doug McQuiston, and Mikaela Cail
november 2018: doug's article on "Early Intervention mediation"
Published in the November 2018 issue of The Colorado Lawyer, Mr. McQuiston’s article “Early Intervention Mediation: A Path to Quicker, Better, Dispute Resolution" explains the Early Intervention Mediation model and analyzes its benefits, including ideas for its application in a hypothetical personal injury case. Please click here to read Doug’s excellent article and please consider whether “EIM” may have an application in some of your pending cases.
To read an earlier version Doug’s EIM article which was published in DRI, please click here.
We now offer "Zero Emission Mediation". Drive your electric vehicle to our office and plug in to one of the charging stations located at the front of the building.
Or, we can drive our recently acquired electric vehicle to conduct a mediation at your office!
Why is the Company called "Accord" ADR Group?
“Accord” comes from the Latin ad (“toward”) + cord (cor) (“heart; mind; judgment”).
(verb) : to bring into agreement : reconcile : to adjust or fit harmoniously
(noun) : agreement; treaty : balanced interrelationship : harmony
The above definition is from the Oxford English Dictionary. Researching that required a trip to the library when we founded the business in 1994. (Remember the days before Wikipedia?)
Parties may "Reach Accord with ACCORD" by making informed decisions in the mediation process and by entering into a settlement agreement designed to provide certainty and finality.
What is your logo? is it a maze? a brain?
Thanks for asking. Actually, while similar to a maze, and though it looks a bit like a brain, the logo is technically considered a labyrinth. The path to resolution may appear perplexing, but through the process of mediation, resolution can be achieved with the assistance of an experienced mediator.
