Our Mission

MediationLine was founded in 2010 by Petra Maxwell as a compassion-driven resource for couples, families and small businesses in need of smart, effective and affordable dispute resolution assistance in times of conflict. Despite her more than 20 years as a practicing attorney, Petra’s extensive work with youth, families and small businesses convinced her that mediation is often the best way to resolve conflicts where complex personal relationships are involved.

MediationLine: Accessible. Flexible. Affordable.

The core principle of MediationLine is that we are here to help you resolve your disputes  – wherever you are.  That means, wherever you are geographically, wherever you are financially, and whatever type of conflict you happen to be involved in.  We feel that high quality conflict resolution services shouldn’t be out of reach if you happen to live in a remote area, if you’re home bound, if you can’t afford it, if you’re too busy, or if you live in a different state from your opponent.  Our goal is to bring our services to you by connecting you online, matching you with a local MediationLine mediator in your immediate area, or, if you choose, assisting you with a DIY approach to resolving your conflict.  Either way, we’re here to help you come up with a efficient strategy for resolution so you can move on with your life as soon as possible.
