Consumer / Merchant
Metropolitan Mediation Services LLC can assist you to resolve consumer complaints. We offer mediation services when a consumer has a dispute or problem with a business. It is important to remember that in mediation we don’t take sides with the consumer or business. In mediation a neutral person called a mediator helps the parties to reach a mutually acceptable resolution of the dispute. The mediator does not decide the case but helps the parties communicate so they can settle the dispute themselves. Mediation is a voluntary process to reach a mutually acceptable settlement of issues in dispute.

Remember, whenever you buy a product, you have a reasonable expectation that it will work as intended. Products must be able to perform the task it was designed to do within a reasonable amount of time. Also, a product is expected to have a reasonable lifespan.
