Sub: #1 Old Thread but still going

Just if anybody was curious, it looks like all the bad press on this site and other sites was getting to Patrick Kienel because he switched company names. He now "does business" as ezMediation. Here are the two websites for your confirmation:

So unless they had the EXACT SAME web designer as each other and did not know it, and unless they have coincidentally "been in business" for the same amount of years, then it is the SAME COMPANY. This is very common with a lot of scam operators. They run one company until enough bad garbage has come out about them, then they bankrupt THAT company and open a nearly identical one under a different name. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE in the websites is that the "Locations" button is missing from the new page.. and upon further investigation, most of the "location offices" are still up and running. So did Patrick abandon all of his other offices to deal with the bad press while he went off to try and re-invent his image? Tough to tell for sure.

I CAN say that I was an old customer of theirs and was not happy with their service. Patrick worked my case and every time we talked, he seemed like he had NO IDEA what was going on in my case and offer to call the attorney. I am THINKING that he took my money and never worked my case until I would call to get an update.. every time I called OVER TWO MONTHS. I got a default judgment for not answering the court summons and when I could not pay the arrangement he set up for me, he tried to push me into bankruptcy. The issue finally got worked out, but I have a feeling, if I did my homework BEFORE I called them, I would have been able to avoid A LOT of the headache. I tried to deal with the attorney BEFORE calling American Mediation/ezMediation and they were difficult to work with, but I feel like if I would have hired a CERTIFIED MEDIATOR, I would have been better off.

REMEMBER if you do not see a certification number or license number on a letter of somebody offering their services to you, DO NOT GIVE THEM A DIME. Certified mediators can be worth their weight in Gold and save you a lot of cost and headache (I used one for my divorce), but MANY STATES DO NOT REQUIRE a certification to be a mediator!!!! (Something ELSE I did not know before I gave Patrick my money). What that means is that ANYONE can send you a letter that claims to be a mediator and NEVER gone through the certification process!

Just like anything folks! Do your homework. I am NOT opposed to people working out of their home to keep their operating costs low but I AM opposed to con artists posing as people that SHOULD BE LICENSED OR CERTIFIED PROFESSIONALS. If he was certified, I could have complained to the Supreme Court or whatever body was responsible for certifying them. Instead, there was nothing I could do but write a complaint on ripoff-report and write a complaint here to hopefully save anybody else from dealing with this man or anybody under the name of AMERICAN MEDIATION or EZ MEDIATION.

I do not know if they are scams, but I DO KNOW that they are not recognized by the State Bar, the Supreme Court or any other regulating body that can act as a person of authority over their business practices. I DO KNOW that my money would have been better spent on hiring A REAL MEDIATOR. I DO KNOW that they seem very unorganized and unprofessional. I DO KNOW that my situation was BETTER BEFORE I did business with them.

REMEMBER if you get a letter from AMERICAN MEDIATION or if you get a letter from EZ MEDIATION, instead of calling them, find a CERTIFIED MEDIATOR that can help you with your case. You will be glad you did.
I hope this helps somebody!!!!

Sub: #2 Funny stuff

This is all very funny. I just got a letter from them too. They are out of Northampton, MA. When I google the phone number on the letter, it comes up as the "Big Water Fish Company".

Big Water Fish Company, 23 Oneil St, Easthampton, MA. Tel: 413-527-1588

When I do a reverse phone number search on, it returns information that it is a landline in Northampton, ma but I have to pay 4.95 to see who it belongs to.

I wouldn't do ANY business with these people.

PLEASE everyone, contact a bankruptcy lawyer or filet yourself. Even though you are panicking about your debt, please do your research and don't put your money in the hands of anyone who seems the slightest bit "fishy".

And since anyone can post on this forum under any name, please know that Mr. Kwiecinski probably wrote all the positive posts.

But here is his home phone and address if you want to call him there or send him back your letter.

Stanley J Kwiecinski
(413) 527-6847
23 Lawler Dr
Easthampton, MA 01027-9731

I find it interesting I can easily search for that! Maybe this is just some name they picked out of the phone book.

i realize these posts are old, but your posts are not accurate about american mediation; i used to run an office & invested with the company; we are no longer in business, but it was not the fault of pat kienel; it was a legitimate business that did serve the public & saved individuals alot of time & money. i love to read posts from idiots that don't know their ass from their elbow. stop fishing & do the research....if you want more info contact me

weird, i posted something in here just yesterday, but it's not in here anymore. anyways, thank you for everyone who's been posting in here about american mediation. yesterday, i received a letter from them...specifically alan dechovany (similar to 'trouble in the suburbs'). this letter indicated that i was being sued, so naturally I got scared because i really do owe money to citibank to whom they have indicated as the party pursuing legal action. this is the first time anything like this has happened to me...and i'm just in a financial rut right now, so it's not like i don't want to pay them back. i just can't. moreover, what do i do if i find that my county clerk does have a file with my name on it? if i really am being sued, i want to make things as right as i possibly can...and within my ableness. i was actually going to file for bankruptcy in about two months. however, with being sued, i probably won't be able to file this, huh? PLEASE HELP. THANK YOU.

Just as another earlier poster in this thread, I received a letter from someone named Alex Duchovany today. This is in California. Naturally, in seeing a letter about getting sued, I freaked out. I owe money to Citibank, so the chances of me being in trouble with them is very possible. However, I had never heard of American Mediation, so I decided to google them. That's how I found this thread. Thank God I did. I know now to just ignore these people. However, I am kind of in the dark about what to do next. I see a lot of people noted the importance of checking with the county courts of where you live...and possibly further out. However, let's say I do find that there is a file for me, what do I do next? Do I get a lawyer? I was already planning for filing for bankruptcy in two months. With this going on, I don't know what to do now. Not to mention, I just had a miscarriage...TODAY. PLEASE HELP.

I'm sitting here with a letter in my hand that contains a $500 check to American Mediation to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy for me. After reading every letter in here, I STILL don't know whether or not to go to the post office and mail this money.

:confused:I recive a ltr from american mediation & alternative resolutions 01/11/2011. Its a good thing i read everyone comments and reply. If u recieve a ltr from them please call your county clerk and provide all information. Once i did that they was unable to locate me in there data. They want some money and than u still owe the actual company so please dont fall for them and dont sign anything unless u talk to your county clerk.

I called this company seeking for help. I am not convince they are legit. this person tried so hard to convince me they will settle the case out of court. but the way he cleverly explain it , it sounded a scam. in the mids of our conversation i asked him two questions, he did not want to answer them. He said that i was looking for free advice and use it myself with the company i owed and then not pay him. I told him the fee that he is aking is low which is very good, however, i just don't feel comfortable when paying in advance before any services is rendered. I did not like his voice and tone, how should i say it " "conning or dishonest " . He tried to disregard whatever i say. To me that's a no no !!!. I checked the internet and i have not seen good result regarding this company. i firmly believe that if someone is asking money in advance before they offer their service, i think this can be a scam. in todys time who can afford to loose a few dollars. I hope i am wrong about them but be extra carefull.
