WE’VE MOVED! (as of January, 2022)

CMC has moved its main office to:
Old Courthouse, Suite 305
300 Main Street
Knoxville, TN  37902
We are now on the 3rd floor, close to the elevators on the west side of the building.  Please come by if you’re in the neighborhood. We are not there 9-5 yet, but we will gladly make in-person office appointments during business hours as long as the courts remain open.  Most of our family mediations are still being done on Zoom or by phone.  Most of our day of court mediations in Knox County General Sessions Court are done in-person.

Our new mailing address is Community Mediation Center, PO Box 788, Knoxville, TN  37901.

PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE NUMBER AND WE WILL RETURN YOUR CALL QUICKLY.  865-594-1879  (We will update this message as needed.)

CMC is a nonprofit community mediation center in Knoxville, Tennessee. We have been mediating disputes since 1994, using well-trained volunteers who work in pairs as co-mediators to help people manage and resolve the conflict between them. Our priority are Knox County cases, but we also serve surrounding counties on request: Blount, Sevier, Anderson, Loudon, Union and Jefferson. We can accommodate all cases using remote mediation (Phone, Zoom and Docusign), however distant.

You don’t have to wait until you’re in court to mediate, although that’s the time many people find out about mediation. You’re able to initiate mediation at any time. Our application process is simple, and our mediations are scheduled to be convenient to working people. Mediation prices are set on a sliding scale which takes into account individual income and family size. Your attorney is very welcome at the mediation sessions, although some people choose to mediate without attorneys present.
