History

The program, originally known as Court Annexed Mediation Services (CAMP), began on February 13, 2001. On February 24, 2010 the program name was officially changed to CMS℠ Court Mediation Services and was approved by the Denver Bar Association (DBA) Board of Trustees as a “stand alone committee” of the DBA. CMS℠ is staffed and operated by trained and experienced mediators. Program funding relies in large part upon the nominal fees collected for our mediation services, with some annual contributions from the DBA, the Denver County Courts, and others. CMS℠ operates with the express approval and support of the Judges and Magistrates who adjudicate the cases mediated.
