Why Us

At 1stResolve, our approach is based on bringing you relief without becoming a source of stress for you.

Or get you an authoritative legal or expert opinions early neutral assessment on the issues in a dispute ...

Or - if you want legal representation - we commit to a non-confrontational approach (see participation agreements) and follow rules for a fixed collaborative resolution process (similar to the pre-action protocols).

Our mediators, ENE assessors or collaborative lawyers will guide the parties through to resolution.
