It's Confidential

Under Florida law, all mediations are confidential. No one attending mediation is allowed to testify in any subsequent lawsuits or other proceedings regarding anything that was said during the mediation.  This legal protection gives businesses an opportunity to meet and talk candidly with creditors and landlords without any pressure or fear that anything they say can be used against them later.

It's Safe, Voluntary and Non Adversarial

These are voluntary meetings led by a neutral mediator who will not take sides.  The mediator is legally responsible to conduct a fair and balanced proceeding without passing any judgment or making any rulings of liability. Lawyers are not required.  No one attending a mediation is required to offer or accept anything that might be discussed during the mediation. 

It's Fast, Convenient and Inexpensive
