MEDIATION SERVICES

PRE-SUIT

Level Mediation LLC offers mediation services when litigation is threatened but before a lawsuit has been filed.  We offer these services to parties who may not be represented by attorneys, as well as to those parties who have retained counsel.

PENDING LITIGATION

We offer mediation services after a lawsuit has been filed, but before a final judgment has been entered.  Mediation in pending lawsuits can either be court-ordered or scheduled by agreement of the parties.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION

We offer mediation services to parties who may have a legitimate dispute that, for whatever reason, is not as likely to lead to a lawsuit, such as workplace disputes, family conflicts, intra-generational or elder care disputes, neighborhood or homeowners’ association disputes, or other interpersonal conflicts.
