Our services


Accord Mediation seeks to bring parties to an agreement — an accord — as efficiently as possible. We make mediation as efficient and flexible as possible. We offer high quality mediation, including Video Mediation, from lawyers with many years of practice in their areas of expertise.


The areas of arbitration offered go from aviation to nursing home cases. Arbitration can resolve a case that needs to have evidence presented and a decision. This can be done well before a case goes to trial in court, and for less time and expense. Please review the areas available for arbitration by Jim Anderson or Mel Mobley.


Prior to becoming a lawyer, Mel Mobley earned a Ph.D. and directed a research center at Emory and continues research into the influence of social psychological factors on the success of mediation. Feel free to review our research, or contact Accord Mediation for more information.


Even with corporate training available for diversity and inclusion, a need exists for smaller conversations about race and racism. Accord Mediation can provide a place, time, and structure for such conversations at no charge with a trained facilitator.
