One of the top mediation providers in Arizona is opening a second location to serve individuals who live and work in metro Phoenix’s West Valley. Affordable Mediation, a divorce-focused mediation firm founded in 2010, began seeing clients at the new location in Goodyear on July 1.

“Being able to help even more individuals and families during a separation or divorce with this second location is important to us as mediators,” said Affordable Mediation founder and owner Mara G. Linder, JD, MA. “We focus on helping couples and families move forward in a positive, collaborative way during a challenging time, making the process less stressful and more cost-effective, than typical divorce litigation.”

The new Affordable Mediation office is located at 2990 N. Litchfield Goodyear on the border with Litchfield Park. Clients looking for divorce mediation in the West Valley can schedule a meeting with Nicole Pelcic, the Affordable Mediation West Valley-dedicated mediator. 

As one of the fastest growing regions in the country, the Phoenix metro West Valley region was the perfect place for growing, family-focused mediation firm to open a location.

“From Buckeye and Laveen to Surprise and even out to Wickenburg, individuals are looking for this type of service and we are excited for Affordable Mediation to join the community,” said Pelcic about the new office she is leading. “As a long-time West Valley resident, I’m looking forward to working with our clients in this region.” 

The number of couples opting for divorce mediation over traditional attorneys continues to increase with nearly 90 percent of mediated divorcecases settled successfully. Statistics also show that nearly two-thirds of individuals are satisfied with divorce mediation, citing the considerably shorter time and expense required for mediation over other options.

All mediators at Affordable Mediation are licensed attorneys with decades of experience both in-house and with law firms.  They  transitioned to mediation to help clients in a more personal, efficient and affordable way. The Affordable Mediation Phoenix office focuses exclusively on divorce mediations.  The Goodyear office focuses on both real estate and divorce mediations.  Our mediators stay current on legal and financial issues that could impact individuals, businesses and families.
