Event Details

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) can help with neighbor disputes and conflicts between Board Members, owners, and vendors. We will discuss scenarios and how managers can utilize the ADR process to resolve disputes and bring peace to the community. Mediation is a private, confidential, and inexpensive way for parties to solve disputes. In mediation, the participants mutually seek to resolve their differences using the services of a trained, neutral third party: the mediator.

This course is approved by Community Association Managers International Certification Board (CAMICB) to fulfill continuing education requirements for the CMCA® certification.

Together, you and Mary will design a response oriented towards litigation or mediation as the specifics of your case demand. Mary's years of experience include many trials involving complex litigation, and she obtained a mediation certification from the King County Dispute Resolution Center to help her clients resolve differences outside the courtroom. Whether your dispute is about the exercise of board powers, assessments, maintenance, construction, covenant enforcement, an interpersonal dispute—or something unheard of—Mary works hard to find a solution in an efficient and timely manner.

She has successfully represented clients in cases involving breach of purchase and sale agreements, auto fraud, timber trespass, easements, commission disputes, guarantees, commercial lease disputes, and partnership disputes.
