By expanding its mediation services, the company can help clients avoid the time and expense associated with litigation. It conducts mediations in criminal cases, civil cases, employment disputes, housing disputes, and more.
In a criminal case, the company facilitates meetings between criminal offenders and their victims in an attempt to repair the harm caused by a criminal act. The facilitator ensures that the criminal receives due process and fair treatment and will suggest alternative punishments such as financial restitution and community service.
Restorative justice focuses on reconciliation instead of punishment. Rather than being locked up, a criminal offender must make amends to the victim and the community. For example, a vandal caught spray-painting a building may do community service removing graffiti. Re-education and re-integration into the community has also been shown to minimize recidivism (the tendency for a criminal to re-offend).
A restorative justice approach is ideal when dealing with juvenile offenders. If children are removed from their homes and schools and put in the juvenile detention facilities, it can derail their entire lives. A restorative justice facilitator will make sure the minor is held accountable and try to deter future delinquent behavior, but will do so from within the child’s community.
Alternative dispute resolution can also be used to settle civil conflicts. The mediator at Midwest ADR, LLC has experience resolving housing disputes between landlords and tenants, neighbors, and roommates. The facilitator can also tackle employment issues such as workplace discrimination and sexual harassment.
Midwest ADR, LLC has been providing alternative dispute resolution services in Kansas City, MO and surrounding areas for over three decades. Its respected facilitator has completed over 300 mediations. Sometimes all that is needed in a criminal or civil case is a neutral third party to identify and facilitate productive resolutions.
