Cape & Islands Mediation Collaborative
is all about neighbors helping neighbors. Cape and Islands Mediation
Collaborative (CIMCI) is a referral service created by a collaboration of mediators
dedicated to providing alternative and affordable forums for
assisting individuals, groups and businesses in resolving conflicts
and legal disputes without experiencing the trauma of traditional
legal actions. The mediators to whom we will refer you have diverse backgrounds
including mental health counseling, agricultural, community and
environmental issues, business and market development, and legal
expertise in divorce, bankruptcy, litigation and probate matters.
They will also adhere to a Code of Conduct which we have established
and which you can see on this site. We have seen that mediation is a cost
effective and personally satisfying method of resolving disputes.
Give us a call. We will try to help you. 1-855-7MEDIATE.
