At Charles N. Castagna Mediation, Inc., my goal is to assist lawyers and their corporate and/or individual clients, as well as unrepresented parties (otherwise known as Pro Se), resolve their disputes in an informal, confidential and non-adversarial setting. This is most effectively accomplished when the parties are given every opportunity to consider and evaluate every aspect of their dispute, and to discuss through the mediator how they feel their dispute should be resolved. This is the purpose of mediation, and it is my purpose in serving as a mediator.
My mediation style can be described as proactive, patient and creative. I believe it is very important to be involved in the process, but with the upmost respect for the participants’ absolute right to fully and freely exercise self-determination in attempting to reach agreement.
It is of paramount importance that the mediator’s responsibilities are performed in a neutral and impartial fashion. This is a hallmark of my mediation practice. I encourage participants to let me know immediately if they feel I am not acting in a neutral and impartial fashion, or if they have any concerns whatsoever as to how the process is being conducted. One of the hallmarks of mediation is the parties’ right to decide the outcome of their dispute with the assistance of a neutral and impartial third party who is actively involved in helping them evaluate options and consider the strengths and weaknesses of their case.
I have been serving as a mediator since 1988 and have seen some remarkable results over the years. Not every case or dispute gets resolved, but many do, and it is an honor and a privilege to participate as a catalyst in that process. Even when cases or disputes do not get resolved at mediation, more often than not, participants leave the process learning something of value and feeling that their participation in the process was worthwhile. And more often than not, even if the matter is not resolved at the mediation, it is resolved as a result of their efforts in mediation and without having to go to trial.
