"After 24 years of practicing law, working the bench, and mediating cases, I was confortable with any situation that arose during divorce mediations. However, after viewing Jim Melamed's Mediating Divorce Agreement, I learned many new and powerful techniques I had never thought of for handling the difficult situations that inevitably arise in domestic cases. Whether you are new to mediation or have been at it for years, this 15 hours DVD set is the best time and money spent by anyone truely invested in the mediation process."

Scott Baroway, Mediation Partners - Denver, Colorado.

"Jim, this is not a request. It is a plaudit. I am about half-way through your divorce mediation online course. I have seen at least 50 trainers over the years, many who are quite well known. This divorce mediation of yours is the best program - and you are by far the best trainer/presenter - that I have ever experienced. Thank you."

Ross Cerny - Los Angeles, CA.
