Why We Mediate


After thirty years as Trial attorneys dealing with heavily contested issues, we realized all of the battling took an unnecessarily harsh toll on our clients. We sought a less costly and more civil way to serve those in need of our assistance.


In 2006, we, along with our father, retired Probate Court Judge George N. Asack, opened the doors of Boston Area Mediation Services, Inc. We have assembled a panel of retired Judges and highly experienced and well respected attorneys who possess the same values of honesty and integrity as we do. We are all prepared to work relentlessly to assist you in resolving your most difficult disputes in a private and dignified setting rather than in a crowded public court room.
