“Creative Solutions to Complex Problems”
What Makes Lakeside Mediation Unique?
Our approach is different. We offer a relaxing venue on a lake for your mediation session. Casual attire is recommended. We all meet together for the opening session and then begin negotiations using private caucuses. Lunch is brought in to avoid interrupting the process. After enjoying a catered lunch on the large deck overlooking the lake, you can discuss your case as you walk along the dam. Of course, you can also choose the traditional law office setting. However, the conveniently located country venue is offered at no charge, and lunch is on us!
Our philosophy is to serve as proactive neutrals, not mere messengers taking offers and counter offers back and forth. We draw on our experience to make suggestions and to point out the strengths and weaknesses of the case.
