Dr. Tom Swisher founded The Resolution Center in 1990 to serve the needs of couples going through separation & divorce. According to Dr. Swisher, Divorce litigation is a costly, slow, very stressful experience for adults and their children. It doesn’t have to be. Mediation offers couples an opportunity to separate and divorce in an amicable way. It also saves them thousands of dollars and helps them to maintain a cooperative parenting relationship. Dr. Swisher has both a law degree and a doctorate in counseling. He is the author of a significant study on “Adaptation to Divorce” and can help you resolve your separation & divorce issues promptly & fairly.

Swisher Mediation and The Resolution Center wish to extend our deepest gratitude to the following Founding Arbitrators & Advisory Board:
