Mediator Profile

I am mediator and arbitrator Mike Black. Since taking my first mediation training in 1996, I have been part of the evolution of family law toward using alternative dispute resolution (ADR) procedures to resolve divorce issues.

Mediation and arbitration are effective processes to settle a divorce efficiently, affordably and in a manner that best suits each family's specific needs.

Since 2015, I have limited my practice to only providing mediation and other ADR services. Over the past 20 years I have handled more than 1,000 cases in mediation and ADR, most of whom are referred to me by other attorneys.

I donate time to Southern Minnesota Regional Legal Services and have been honored by the Ramsey County Bar Association with the distinguished humanitarian service award.
