In order to bring The State Bar in compliance with Rule 25.04 of the West Virginia Trial Court Rules, The State Bar has established a website listing of members who are both willing and qualified to serve as mediators in the circuit courts of this State. The three options to register for this mediator listing are as follows:
A member who is willing to serve on a volunteer basis shall be listed at no cost in one county.
A member who is willing to serve on a paid basis shall be listed in up to five counties for an annual fee of $50.
A member who is only willing to be a paid mediator shall be listed in up to ten counties for an annual fee of $100.

Questions regarding registration should be directed to Mike Mellace at firstname.lastname@example.org or 304-553-7223. Other questions should be directed to the Chairperson of the ADR Committee at email@example.com.
NOTE: It is not the intent of The West Virginia State Bar that this list be the exclusive list of individuals who may serve as mediators, or may be otherwise qualified to perform mediations, but is a list mandated by Trial Court Rule 25.04.
