Choice Mediation

Choice Mediation Solutions is an outlet to resolve your Family, Civil, Commercial, Employment or Personal Injury Dispute privately while saving you time and cost. We offer Mediation, Pre-Mediation, and Legal Document Preparation. Mediation is a face to face meeting with the opposing side to resolve your matter with a neutral third party now. Pre-Mediation saves you time, travel and face-time by mediating (negotiating) through your assigned Mediator through correspondence. Never having to meet or speak to the opposing side personally. Legal Document Preparation is offered for those that are needing closure and simply want to add it with the mediation agreement or simply know the opposing side will not cooperate so you would prefer to petition the court without having to prepare the documents yourself to avoid rejection or objections in your filing. All staff is Certified for the State of Louisiana to Mediate or Prepare Legal Documents.

Approach

WHY MEDIATION by Choice Mediation Solutions

Mediation is fair and neutral. Parties have an equal say in the process and they, not the mediator, decide the terms of the settlement. There is no determination of guilt or innocence in the process only resolution. You leave feeling free with the matter resolved, not like you settled for less or to get it over with.

Mediation saves time and money.
Mediation usually occurs early in the charge process, and mediation is completed in one meeting. Legal or other representation is optional but not required.

Mediation is confidential.
All parties sign a confidentiality agreement. Information disclosed during mediation will not be revealed to anyone, including investigative or legal staff.

Mediation avoids litigation.
Mediation costs less than a lawsuit and avoids the uncertainty of a judicial outcome.

Choice Mediation Solutions is a problem-solving approach to complaints and workplace disruptions.

Mediation improves communication. Mediation provides a neutral and confidential setting in which the parties can openly discuss their views on the underlying dispute so everyone sees and understands both sides of the claim, and/or disagreement.

Mediation helps to discover the real issues and resolve them immediately.

Mediation allows you to design your own solution.
A neutral third party assists the parties in reaching a voluntary, mutually beneficial resolution. Mediation can resolve all issues important to the parties, not just the underlying legal dispute.
