What is your business background? Our business background includes: Mediation business partners, registered mediator, college teaching and marketing and program managers.
Why did you start this particular business? To meet a continuing need in the community. In addition to voluntary mediation, the process may be required in many legal situations. North Georgia Mediation Firm is not engaged in the practice of law, nor does it provide legal advice. Instead, we help people by designing a conflict resolution process that best meets their needs and budgets by providing a qualified mediator and by coordinating the time and place that fit the parties schedule.
What makes your business unique? Confidentiality: Mediation allows parties to air their grievances in a private setting.
Emotional: Mediation gives parties a chance to be heard. For some people, being able to air grievances and receiving an apology or explanation may be more important than receiving a monetary settlement.
Specialized Solutions: Mediation allows the parties to create their own solution to a dispute. Parties may consider non-legal as well as legal interests.
Costs: Mediation is usually much less costly than litigation.
What do you enjoy most about your chosen profession? Working with our clients to help them solve a dispute without the stress of going to court. In many cases, clients are able to solve their own dispute without hiring an attorney. We also enjoy working with the local attorneys on court-required mediation.
What has been the biggest or most interesting challenge to overcome as small business owners? Providing mediation services to a changing environment and helping clients get an agreement they can live with.
