Some thoughts on Conflict and Peace:

"He who has a thousand friends has not a friend to spare, And he who has one enemy will meet him everywhere."

 "Quarrels would not last long if the fault was only on one side."   
Francois duc de la Rochefoucauld

 "We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are."   
Anais Nin

   "Though force can protect in emergency, only justice, fairness, consideration and cooperation can finally lead men to the dawn of eternal peace."     
Dwight D. Eisenhower, 34th President of the United States


In recent years, alternative dispute resolution ("ADR") processes have revolutionized conflict management in the workplace, at the courthouse, within the family nest and even over the backyard fence.

Simply put ADR is the alternative to prolonged, expensive and emotionally draining litigation.  While no one today doubts that litigation is a marked improvement over dueling at dawn prevalent in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, ADR is the twenty-first century's increasingly preferred response to disputes and conflict.

The spectrum of conflict resolution responses includes (1) in-house preventative measures through staff training, conflict identification, internal problem-solving frameworks, facilitation, advisory fact-finding or outcome prediction, to (2) dispute resolution through mediation and arbitration and (3) finally to rights-based decision-making by a tribunal or court.

At VERITAS CONFLICT RESOLUTIONS it is our aim to provide customized, cost-effective dispute resolution services, whether it be mediation, arbitration or conflict management and diversity training.  It is our goal that by aiding and empowering you to alleviate the conflict and disputes that serve as obstacles to, and distractions from your preferred goals, we will free you to create your Success.

Our principal Vanessa Aching Davenport has the experience, wisdom, tenacity and impartiality of her legal training combined with a genuine interest in others and their stories.  She focuses all of these characteristics towards the goal of aiding parties in resolving their disputes in an expeditious yet productive and sustaining manner.
