Professional Mediators of Virginia (PMV) started in 2007 when a group of professional mediators came together to develop an organization able to serve clients involved in many types of disputes. PMV has steadily grown since it was founded and now uses the services of four Supreme Court Certified mediators who have handled over 2000 cases since 2007.
We are a local organization that provides mediation services to individuals and organizations in Orange, Louisa, Culpeper and Spottsylvania Counties. Our firm uses professional Supreme Court Certified mediators to help people find ways of resolving their differences without going to court.
