Volunteer Mediators Needed

The Office of the Court Administrator is recruiting, screening, and training volunteer county court mediators.  Mediation is a process by which a neutral third party, the mediator, sits down with the plaintiff and the defendant in a dispute, and facilitates discussion between the parties in an effort to help them come to a mutual agreement, thereby eliminating the need for a formal court hearing.  County court mediators facilitate discussions in small claims or landlord tenant disputes.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer county court mediator, please call (863) 534-4698.
