A Non-Profit Dedicated to keeping Families Out of Court & Resolving Injustices Peacefully

Steve Erickson and Marilyn McKnight

Making Court Unthinkable for Families” is what mediators Steve Erickson and Marilyn McKnight have been doing since 1977 with the Erickson Mediation Institute. Steve, also an attorney, knew court was not for families when in 1977 he lost a client due to an angry homicidal husband. Since then Steve practices only mediation, and believes that it is unethical for one attorney to represent and turn a family member against the rest of the family. The two have trained thousands of mediators throughout the country and the world, including Michelle MacDonald. Steve and Marilyn pioneered the training of Family Innocence Advocates, the first of its kind, designed to assist families through Family Innocence mediation and decision-making process. Married since 1968, they have 2 children and 3 grandchildren. Contact Steve or Marilyn at (952) 835-3688 or emi@ericksonmediation.com
