Appointment as a DeMars & Associates neutral involves several steps.  We review qualifications, train, and test to make sure that each Arbitrator and Mediator we appoint upholds the tradition of excellence we established in 1988.   

Individuals who are interested in being considered for appointment are invited to contact a Program Coordinator. 

Parties to disputes may review the qualifications and the sample background information by clicking on the "Services" tab, and then the "Arbitration Network" tab.


"Thank you for all your help ... I believe you are the reason the settlement was accomplished."

They happen between people, they happen between businesses, and they happen between businesses and people. We understand that dealing with disagreements between consumers and businesses can be difficult, confusing, and frustrating. So we've designed our dispute resolution programs to be fair, straightforward, and responsive.
