Meet Your Mediator

Goodbye Stress. Hello Life. 

Happy Mediation Company is a professional dispute resolution company owned and operated by a highly experienced litigator based in Orlando Florida. Our offices are conveniently located throughout the Orlando region with comfortable conference rooms, convenient parking, Wi-Fi service, and complimentary refreshments. For a full day mediation in office, lunch is also provided to all parties.

Mediation is a way to resolve issues without going to court or adding up large attorney bills. We are here to help you fix problems with you in control. With years of experience in litigation and mediation, we can provide the skills you need to close your case. Happy Mediation Company provides a different approach when it comes to settling your case. There are no losers in our mediation style. With Happy Mediation, the mediator will take you through the process, so you know what to expect. We also make sure that we assess the priorities of each party beforehand to come to the best solution of all parties. We focus on how you feel before, during, and after the mediation so that you have an agreement you can live with.

Happy mediation also recognizes that we are living in a 24/7 world. Some people simply are not available during the 9-5 hours that most mediators provide. Additionally, when the parties may be located at opposite ends of the state, or even country, the costs of travel often exceed the cost of the mediation itself.   We are working to change that.

Happy Mediation offers our clients the opportunity to participate in virtual mediation sessions, utilizing methods of electronic communication to bring the mediation to you. WE pride ourselves on taking an open-minded approach to applying evolving technology to meet the needs of our clients. By applying new technology to our service line, we help our clients avoid additional costs related to dispute resolution. Our virtual mediation service is there when you need to save time and money.
