Joe Corriveau selected by 3rd Circuit Court as a Certified Mediator

The 3rd Circuit Court has recently selected me to help them in their effort to clear up the backlog of mediation cases caused by the COVID-19 lockdown. As a certified mediator, I am proud to be apart of Settlement Week and am excited to expand Corriveau Law into mediation!

Mediation is a procedure in which the parties discuss their disputes with the assistance of a trained impartial third person who assists them in reaching a settlement. Mediation is designed to help people work through conflicts without the need of a judge or legal proceedings. A mediation lawyer can help you sort through the consequences of certain decisions, which will allow you to make the best decisions for yourself in mediation
