“The mediator helped us find solutions we hadn’t thought of.”“Your staff was very concerned, very pleasant and professional.”“It was outstanding. This is a great service.”“To my pleasant surprise, I found out your department was no rubber-stamp or facade agency.”“It helped get old issues off my back.”“Mediation provided a more convenient option than going through court proceedings – saved taxpayers and parties involved time and money.”“It was above my expectations.”“I was wrong to assume that there was no solution…there is a solution, and that is communication.”“It was a good experience. I’m glad I participated.”“This is cool! The efficiency and effectiveness were amazing.”“Thank goodness we had this or we’d still be fighting over everything!”
JCMS saves county resources in three key ways:
From 2006 - 2011, seven county agencies and municipalities, plus county court, saved a minimum of $652,556.
