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. We also serve surrounding counties on request: Blount, Sevier, Anderson, Loudon, Union and Jefferson.

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.
