Very positive experience of mediation.
Fantastic experience to date. Candid, sound advice and prompt action. After agonizing with two previous unresponsive lawyers I finally found a great one that is my advocate. Completely satisfied
10 stars if it would let me! If you're ever in doubt, it's always good to find a place that will give you that free initial consultation because you're paying for their services and you need to make sure it's a good fit. But after coming here, I didn't need to search any further. I have been working with 1st Step Mediation practically since they began business. Mrs. Houston knows how to reduce the friction in many situations. Even if I'm uptight when our session begins, I found that she has been able to help me to get my emotions under control and reduce my stress level. Mediation with her was also like therapy because it gave me a mental release to understand why I've been going through what I've been going through. She is very kind and helpful and aims to see her clients happy. All the blame stops at the door. With Mrs. Houston's assistance, I've been able to reconcile many relationships, even ones I never thought I could. I thank you so much for having such a valuable impact on my life and helping me to be closer to God and prepare for all my future blessings by settling issues of my past. I HIGHLY recommend 1st Step Mediation! Even if you're not sure, just try that first session and it will help you to make up your mind!
Lynda is a very devoted person. She meant to help me and the other party to understand each other's situations. She was very professional in dealing with us. Though conversations were very critical, we were able to resolve the conflict with her mediating among us. It was wonderful to have Lynda as our mediator.
Sterling delves deeply into root issues that other counselors fell short on. His approach comes w/o judgement, just identifying sources of attitudes/behaviors and how to deal with them.
He made himself easily available and provided great insight and strategies for resolution. Still a lot of work to be done but these things take time and diligence.
Ive meet with the dialogue group team, as was mentioned 30 minutes of initial consultation were complimentary. The matter was handled in a professional and concise way. There were no hidden fees and the flat rate was very reasonable compared to other entities. I recommend using Dialogue Group LLC for people who are looking to solve their problems in a fast, cost efficient and hassle free environment.

Maryland Family Mediation believes that most people have the potential to find solutions to their own disputes. We help you and the other parties in the conflict or lawsuit settle difficult conversations over problematic issues. We intercede over family issues which may involve your spouse, partner, parents or adult or minor children. Whether your concerns are separation and divorce, parenting plans, mixed families or seniors and care giving, we can guide the discussion, so you can make decisions over the complicated challenging issues that you and your family are facing. Past clients have complimented our "calm approach" in mediation as it enabled them to have open and honest dialogues, venting their differences and finding workable solutions. Mediation looks forward rather than backwards. It does not dwell on blame for past mistakes but instead looks onward and helps families come up with options for the future. Thus, parents who are in the throes of a divorce need mediation to help them figure out their role as a parent when they're no longer married. Mediation can help divorcing parents make arrangements over who makes the decision-making for the children, who takes them to the dentist or doctor, or who picks them up after sports training. This is a crucial process for moving forward and staying out of conflict. We have more than 30 years of diverse legal experience in both private and public sectors. We have training in collaborative law as well as more than 300 hours of specialized and advanced mediation and alternative dispute resolution training.

Many people who have just met me ask, "Were you raised by your grandparents?" Sadly, I didn't have the opportunity to know my grandparents, but I think their comments reflect the idea that my parents raised me with many ideas that are now seen as "old fashioned," ideas such as, "If you're going to do anything, do it with all of your heart," or "Respect yourself enough to do your best; a piece of you is reflected in everything you touch." I honestly believe the lessons I was taught, which is why I've been successful in some of life's major goals, like paying off my home before the full mortgage was due, or losing a good deal of weight. I'll be very honest and say that many times, I've met people who remember having met me, and I've had to admit not remembering them. I've felt badly about that, but it also makes me feel proud to be memorable.
