The link to help people Mutually Resolve the conflicts of life!
Meditation is a viable option if:
o The disputing parties desire a prompt and mutually acceptable resolution in lieu of the time-consuming process of the traditional dispute (litigation) systems
o Maintaining a relationship
(professional and/or personal) between the parties is important, necessary and desirable
o Traditional settlement
negotiations have reached an impasse and the parties wish to avoid the establishment of a possible legal precedent
o The parties cannot agree on a solution on their own
o Both parties wish to avoid lawsuits

Unfortunately, business relations don’t always last forever and not all personal relationships (partnerships) end up happily ever after!
Business and personal relationships can be damaged through poor performance, inadequate communications and/or unresolved conflicts.
Court proceedings are expensive, time consuming and the outcomes do not benefit both parties! However, the time-honored process of mediation can be a win-win all parties can be satisfied with.
Mitchell Mediation Services (MMS) believes and was founded on the principles that people have the ability to successfully negotiate through the painful events in their lives.
MMS is owned by Carla M. Mitchell, a certified mediator with over 10 years of experience as a negotiator and conflict resolution manager. An ordained deacon for nearly 15 years, Mitchell has extensive experience in family and singles counseling and is a commissioned Steven Minister.
MMS strives to excel in the business of providing professional, thoughtful and dignified mediation/dispute resolution services in the areas of mediation, conflict management, dispute resolution and negotiations.
All disputing parties need is a neutral guiding hand and objective third party to help them bridge (overcome) the differences to come up with solutions and resolutions that result in a win-win for all parties involved.
The mediator acts as a facilitator, guiding the parties in identifying issues, engaging in joint problem solving, and exploring creative settlement alternatives.
Although the process is voluntary and nonbinding, it results in a strikingly high settlement rate. There are a variety of reasons to select mediation, rather than litigation (court) or arbitration, and it has become increasingly common for courts to order parties to mediate in cases in which they have not engaged in settlement negotiations prior to trial.
Parties are generally more satisfied with a mediated resolution, rather than one imposed upon them such as happens with a court judgment, because the parties created the solution themselves. Plus, mediation is less costly than protracted litigation or arbitration and both parties share in the cost to mediate.
MMS will provide consulting services that assist its customers in finding the best approach to reconcile their corporate, family and/or community disputes.
These services are confidential and allow parties a forum for self-resolution that is permanent and ensures that all parties (stakeholders) mutually benefit, because they are empowered to structure resolutions to disputes and conflicts that directly impact them.
Mitchell Mediation Services clientele is diverse. MMS will work on behalf of businesses, individuals, couples (seeking divorce or relationship dissolution), families and non-profit organizations.
MMS plans to develop a specialized focus on elder care mediations. According to a March 18, 2004 article on America.gov, the U.S. population is expected to become older.
Baby Boomers (people born between 1946 and 1964) will begin to turn 65 in 2011 and by 2030, about one-in-five U.S. residents will be 65 or over, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. This market will offer a significant amount of opportunity for MMS.
The ultimate goal of Mitchell Mediation Services is to become a leader in the mediation field and a strong and positive presence in the Milwaukee community.
