Public Negotiation

PeopleClaim public mediations with co-plaintiffs are similar to class actions except they're resolved with the help of our community of conflict resolution professionals.

Public mediations with co-plaintiffs may be resolved globally — one offer to all parties — or individually via party-to-party negotiation with each separate claim.

While the goal is to help you find the shortest distance between a problem and its resolution, unresolved public mediations may be referred for formal legal represenatation and class action.

When Domestic Violence and Disabled Discrimination happens in family court

Opening StatementProvided by: Adrienne L., Plaintiff
I'm a survivor of many years of Domestic Violence. When I left my abuser I went to treatment for PTSD. When I came home he took my son a day before his birthday and basically legally kidnapped him. I fought until I was financially drained. I then found out I had a terminal brain disease and haven't been able to work in a year and half. I just got approved for social security, but I will not receive for months. My husband worked two jobs to get the attorneys we had and we ran out of money to continue fighting. My ex was given custody while he was out on bond for assault against me and will not allow any calls. The abuse hasn't stopped, it's just now through the court room and lawyer. I have been bullied by the attorney. She was unethical. They wouldn't allow my mother or my oldest son to be around him because she testified that she saw bruises on me. My ex has been arrested for stalking me and assault. He has multiple felonies and I haven't ever been arrested or ever on drugs. There have been 4 dcs cases against him and not once was I contacted. The judge wouldn't even listen to me. The guardian never interviewed me. My cries for help were ignored completely. The advocate I worked with said that Wilson county is notorious for letting domestic violence slide. That was definitely the case with Judge Gwinn, the guardian, and DCS. This is how domestic violence plays out in court if the judge allows it. This is why so many women stay. This was my worst nightmare that came true. I'm begging for myself and other women that we demand a judge that is capable of making the best decision for the children involved. I can't sleep at night knowing my child is not safe. Please help.

    Call the Domestic Violence National hotline at -1-800-799--7233. There are federal protections in place to assist a victim of domestic violence . a long with an advocate. There is a possibility for , mental health therapy , restitution by the perpetrator, Grants and/ or funding as well.
    I would also notified Child Protective Services because your child is a possible victim to violence.
    If this child has witnessed the assaults, such an incident is considered mental abuse. Child Protective Services can also make a recommendation as to where your child should live
    and what type of environment is appropriate for your child. There are federal agencies who you may file a complaint against a judge for unwarranted behavior.
    Contact the number I gave you and they may advise you as to whom and where you need to notify to file your complaint.
    Also why haven't charges been filed against the perpetrator by the district attorney ?
    Have the police responded to any of those assaults and if so why did they not provide an
    emergency protective order ?
    Also what is the basis for not having visitation with your child even if it was a supervised visitation?
    I would have made a lot of calls to Social Services .
    This is inappropriate. Resolution with a person who assaults another individual
    in the presence of their child requires legal intervention as they obviously can't control themselves and assistance is required
