Conflict Resolution Through Mediation in Kansas

DRS associates are Kansas Supreme Court approved mediators with a history of successfully negotiating hundreds of agreements in both private and court referred cases. We are mediators not attorneys; trained to help both individuals and organizations resolve problems resulting from conflict or a dispute before relationships are irreversibly damaged, or a threat of legal action is pursued. Our objective is straightforward:

“To offer an alternative choice for resolving conflict and disputes in order to affect their peaceful, efficient and enduring resolution; and to provide learning programs that inspire participants and encourage a more consciously civil society.”
