About ADR West

ADR West was launched in 2010. by its founder David Dickinson.  Mr. Dickinson was inspired to create a premier ADR organization after participating in numerous mediation sessions in Colorado.  He  realized that there was not an organization that provided excellent service, a qualified panel of mediators, and a process that was objective and  did not favor either party.

After a distinguished profession career spanning over 30 years Mr. Dickinson went back to school. He acquired his mediation training from Pepperdine School of Law–Straus Institute For Dispute Resolution–Mediating the Litigated Case. Then Mr. Dickinson began the process of becoming a qualified mediator by mediating over 150 cases.

Today, ADR West has offices in Denver, Colorado Springs and its newest office located in Scottsdale Arizona.  ADR West distinguished panelist all have over 20 years of professional and/or legal experience.

The mandate for ADR West is to Settle Matters Quickly.  This is based upon the famous Bible passage:  “Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still with him on the way, or he may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison.”
