Divorce Mediation & Workplace Mediation Services

Interpeople Inc is a Massachusetts company dedicated to helping people resolve tough interpersonal disagreements in a good constructive way at low cost.

Since its establishment, Interpeople has gained recognition in the mediation community. It has been listed among the top ADR companies in the Boston Business Journal's Book of Lists on five consecutive years, while such a list was included in the Book of Lists.

Dr. Thomson has been a mediator since 1988. Recognized by clients for her informal and humorous style, she has mediated over 1,000 cases. These include workplace mediation, and over 700 divorce mediations by the end of 2013. Dr. Thomson believes mediation is a helping profession. People often come to her in distress over conflict that has gone on for years, or over the breakup of their marriage. Much of the initial anxiety is reduced by the first meeting. By the time they reach the end of the mediation, they have a sense of how their life will unfold, and much of the parties' anxiety is gone and their relationship improved.

Keep in mind: "Give peace a chance" does not mean "leave peace to chance." You need to act on conflict that persists and undermines.
S. Thomson

Divorce Mediation

Dr. Thomson helps divorcing parties cover all issues from A to Z, including all child related and financial issues. Dr Thomson brings knowledge of Massachusetts divorce norms and expectations, child development, psychology, taxes, finance and an analytic mind on top of her mediation skills.

At the end of the process couples have a complete court packet and can get divorced if they go to court.

Some couples come to Interpeople after spending tousands of dollars and many months on attorneys in the traditional divorce route. They find their relationships undermined and their savings depleted with no progress. It usually takes five to six meetings to conclude the process of divorce mediation and the cost is a fraction of the cost incurred the traditional way.

If you face divorce or a difficult family situation, you owe yourself to first give mediation a chance.

While you are encouraged to consult with Shuneet Thomson about any conflict situation in the community, business and family, Interpeople's primary focus is on divorce mediation (helping people who face divorce get through it in a decent way) and on workplace mediation, where Interpeople offers a comprehensive dispute resolution service.
