Types of Mediation We Offer
Although there is no official certification for mediation or arbitration in Maryland, the Maryland Circuit Courts use arbitrators and mediators whom each Court has qualified. These qualifications for appointment differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, but in general they include requiring the Mediator or Arbitrator to meet certain educational and experiential requirements, and to have been accepted for inclusion on a county court's mediation panel. Those included may then be appointed as a court-ordered Mediator in that county, on a case-by-case basis.
