Approach

Harold C. Cohen, Ph.D. 35 Anderson Ridge Road Catonsville, MD 21228 (443) 829-8113 EMSHC@AOL.COM Alternative Dispute Resolution – Mediation Thank you for contacting me about mediation services. I am a trained mediator who practices in several venues including: private business and commercial, court-based, public safety, EEOC, and healthcare. My philosophy is to tailor mediation to the clients and to the situation. The bottom line is that mediation should allow disputing parties to reach an agreement and avoid the time and cost of protracted court battles. Our goal is to reach agreement, not to assess blame.
