Mediation Exchange, Marketing and More...


Mediation Exchange

This website and business model behind it was developed by Thomas Meyer who is an attorney and a Florida Supreme Court Certified Mediator with a keen interest in marketing mediation better. Mr. Meyer believes that a lot more needs to be said about mediation besides mediation is cheaper and faster than litigation.

"The real selling point needs to be that mediation works.  We need to give mediation a higher profile reputation for success. I want to explain, in simple layman terms, exactly how and why mediation is able to consistently resolve more disagreements, conflicts and disputes than litigation or any other legal process available.  Its not magic, its common sense, science, psychology and human nature. "   Read more in our mediation blog.

"I developed this site and mediation exchange model because I felt that something more had to be said and done to educate and enable people to resolve more disputes privately without relying so heavily upon going to court.  I found that most people who have either sued or been sued were not happy with the legal process and were surprised and disapppointed over how little was accomplished in court.  Yet, nothing seems to change.  People keep filing lawsuits, complain, and after they run out of time, money or patience, only then seek to settle their disputes out of court." 



20/20 hindsight that you can use to gain 20/20 foresight how to settle your next dispute.

There are over 150 pages of content focused on helping people make more informed decisions how best to avoid and resolve disputes without going to court.

"Instead of learning from your own mistakes through trial and error, you can visit 4disputes and learn from experienced professionals how they handle difficult disputes and how lawsuits, mediation and arbitration really work.  We will give you current facts and figures to objectively quantify just how successful mediation has been.  These facts may surprise you."



The legal system's cup runneth over....

The legal system was never designed to resolve all the disputes that occur.  Every year, millions of people and businesses choose to file lawsuits to try to resolve their problems.  However, litigation usually fails to live up to expectations.  Over 95% of cases never get to trial. In the end, parties are still left searching for another more effective way to resolve their situation privately.

"You will learn that lawsuits are usually reduced to nothing more than an expensive middleman in the dispute resolution process.  People like to start there, but at some point, judges or lawyers will suggest or require people to attempt to resolve the case out of court."




It's time to "cut the cord" that has kept mediation out of reach to anyone other than lawyers and judges.


"Mediation began and still remains out of reach, unknown and misunderstood by most people.  Its use remains largely under the control and direction of lawyers and judges.  Therefore, people don’t usually learn about mediation until after they have filed a lawsuit.  That's just too late..." 



We aim to "privatize" mediation and explain it so non-lawyers can understand it and use it to resolve more of their disputes out of court.

"4disputes is investing the time, money and creativity to attract a larger audience to the field of mediation.  We explain, package and deliver mediation directly to the people and businesses who need it the most whenever they need a proven alternative to litigation."


Someone's got to do it !

"To this point, mediators and the mediation field has not done a very effective job of marketing.  Most of the content on the internet is written for lawyers and mediators, not for the real stakeholders, the people and businesses with the actual disputes.   There is just too much “preaching to the choir,” and not enough materials to really explain and deliver mediation to laypeople." 

4Disputes redirects and expands the reach of mediation directly to the people and businesses who need it most to resolve disputes with spouses, customers, venders, employers / employees, creditors, suppliers, contractors, etc.."


We offer our website to mediators as an open source whiteboard, platform and a virtual mediation storefront.      

"There are plenty of websites out there for mediators to find CLE, CME and to exchange views and strategies with other practitioners. That's not us. This is a website and social media platform where mediators are invited to speak directly to the individuals and businesses who have never tried mediation before.  If you have something to say that will help people and businesses better understand what causes conflicts and disputes, and better yet, how to prevent or better resolve conflicts and disputes at mediation, then let 4Disputes help carry that torch for you."
