Joyce Craig

Joyce I. Craig launched Concierge Resolution Services and welcome referrals for complex family and business disputes. An advantage of private mediation over litigation for sibling rivalries and intergenerational family disputes is that the process is private and confidential.

We work with you and move forward to creative resolutions, reconciliations and healing. While courts and arbitrations are limited in the remedies they may offer and usually require an outsider to decide how you are to go forward, we will work with you and help you reach your own decisions to resolve conflict and support peace. For cases with multiple parties or that are actively litigated, we will co-mediate using our panel of experienced mediators selected for your unique situation. Call us at 424-248-6464.

Approach

Concierge Resolution services offersmediation and collaborative resolution strategies to resolve complex family and business legacy and elder planning. I offer insight and, compassion while drawing upon over three decades of experience and information to clarify complicated, emotionally charged issues, and overcome emotional barriers. I am experienced in facilitating large group conflict resolution sessions using a personal and customized problem solving approaches to fully engage each participants in the family process.

We conduct thorough intake and case evaluation and provide a plan for mediation that makes sense to our clients. Then we provide a comfortable environment for mediation, hosting all of the persons who need to participate in the process. We offer as an option a method known as “co-mediation” which places two mediators in the room with you. While one of us is intently listening to you, the other may take notes, observe other parties, and help organize the strategies to move forward. We find this method can be more efficient in the long run and helps drive the mediation as deep as necessary to creatively resolve the dispute and confirm the new agreement in a writing that may be submitted to a Court for enforcement.
