We’ll be recognizing three local peacemakers at our ‘Don’t Worry, Be Happy!’ event on October 16. Do you know someone who is making a difference in our community by increasing awareness about alternative dispute resolution? Someone who is leading an awesome effort to get people interested in “talking it out” in a positive way? Is there a teacher, professor, mediator, legal professional, or community leader who has dedicated their time to peaceful conflict resolution? We want to know who they are!

Resolving differences. Restoring relationships.

Peaceful communities are places where people want to live and work. They are secure places to raise children. They are cooperative places capable of great things. And they can only be built by people who understand how to communicate and resolve their differences. The Dispute Resolution Center of West Michigan helps people weave a strong fabric of community that brings peace and joy to life.


We help people solve their differences peacefully and constructively, using the services of a trained mediator. This mediator brings both parties together for discussion, and together they create their own solution to the problem. We can help in nearly any type of situation, including landlord-tenant disputes, educational issues, parenting disputes, employee grievances, disagreements between neighbors, small claims issues, and many more.
