Dave Williams, M.Div
Genesis Mediation Group Associate
Genesis Mediation Website

Dave has more than 30 years of conflict mediation experience. He is a member of the Washington Mediation Association and has worked with individuals, families and organizations; helping them work through issues and reach agreements that reflect the best interests of all those affected.

Genesis Mediation Group was established in 2004, and is now one of the largest non-attorney based mediation practices in the Portland/Vancouver area. Genesis has offices throughout Portland, Vancouver and the surrounding area.

Genesis is committed to working with their clients to help reach agreements that:

• Are a win/win because they are achieved through collaboration and discussion rather than through litigation or decisions mandated by the court system. Mediation is client-driven.

• Lay the foundation that allows the parties to move forward in a healthy and productive way.

• Are achieved in a timely and cost-efficient manner. The average cost of a divorce with attorneys is $15,000-$20,000 (and significantly higher if it is contested), and will often stretch over a period of several months. The average cost of a mediated divorce agreement is $1,500-$2,000 and can be achieved in a matter of weeks.
