Mediation

Marcella Fleming Reed, the principal of MFR Associates, helps organizations efficiently resolve disputes with former and current employees through mediation services.

You can enlist our services to help resolve employment disputes before – or even after – litigation. Mediation is voluntary, and all parties must consent to participate with the goal of creating a mutually agreeable solution. As the mediator, Marcella serves as a neutral facilitator, first to determine the issues that need to be addressed and then to guide the parties through the process of achieving resolution. She also advises each party on the strengths and weaknesses of the case and the likelihood that the dispute can be resolved through the mediation process.

Certified Mediator

Marcella’s skills as a mediator are held in the highest esteem. She has a tremendous ability to connect with diverse constituencies. She will push hard when necessary, but in a very respectful way, that gets results. And she consistently gets the highest marks on our post-mediation evaluations. We know her to be capable of finding settlement in the most entrenched conflicts, to be thoughtful, patient and compassionate with clients, and to be thorough in the crafting of settlement agreements that stand the test of time.

I firmly believe from my own experience as a mediator averaging about 40 mediations a year and a member of several dispute resolution organizations (American Arbitration Association since 1971), that Marcella is a must have mediator.
