Brant-Wentworth Mediation and Arbitration Services Inc. provides Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) services by two experienced personnel – Paul M. Stillman and J. Eric Pass, throughout Ontario with offices based in Brantford and Hamilton. These services include mediation, arbitration, consulting in all areas of conflict management, program design and evaluation, providing dispute resolution systems, conflict analysis, process design and advice, and customized interventions based upon the specific needs of the disputants.

People with conflicts that arise within all areas of law, including matrimonial, estate, commercial, employment, and personal injury may benefit from these alternatives to the Court process because:

  1. The level of stress for the parties involved is significantly reduced in a less adversarial and confrontational environment than in a courtroom.
  2. The likelihood of a continued ongoing relationship between the parties following a resolution is greatly enhanced if facilitated as an alternative to using the Courts.
  3. The disputants choose their mediator or arbitrator, as well as the scheduling and location of events.
  4. Disputes usually get resolved with less expense to the parties than if those disputes were left to a Court to adjudicate.
