Conflict in our communities can be costly and painful experiences. Mediation and conflict training are excellent methods for resolving conflict in a respectful and positive way. The professionals of Papa & Roberts, PLLC offer cutting edge mediation and training services for churches, synagogues, neighborhood associations and other community groups to help these organizations function more smoothly, move through conflict with grace and ease and focus on the mission of their organization rather than internal conflict. Our professionals can assist organizations and community groups in a wide variety of settings, both large and small, to resolve conflict. Conflict within religious communities can be particularly painful. Papa & Roberts offers mediation services to help your church, synagogue, or other religious organization understand and resolve your conflict so that your community can begin moving toward healing and peace. These services are also beneficial for easing pastoral/leader transition.
At Papa & Roberts, we provide mediation services to resolve disagreements and disputes related to land use and property, including neighbor, community association and zoning disputes as well as landlord/tenant and other property-related disagreements.
