Dedicated Florida Mediator Provides Alternative Dispute Resolution Services

Attentive Clearwater firm delivers trusted service to clients

Through mediation, Charles N. Castagna Mediation, Inc. in Clearwater can help you resolve disputes appropriately while limiting expenses and maintaining a professional atmosphere. I am a Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit and Family Mediator with over 30 years of experience handling mediations throughout Florida.

Any time there are two or more parties with vested interests in a legal or business matter, disputes can occur. I use my decades of experience to help business and individual clients resolve their legal issues through this means of alternative dispute resolution.

Attorney offers client-focused dispute resolution services that cover a variety of issues

Mediation is about helping two parties find common ground, and that is what I do best. Since 1988, I have successfully mediated thousands of cases involving a variety of disputes. Some of the types of disputes I commonly mediate cover the following areas:

  • Personal injury
  • Divorce and family law
  • Insurance disputes
  • Real estate
  • Business and contracts
  • Landlord-tenant
  • Labor and employment
  • Workers’ compensation
  • Probate
  • Securities

My role as an effective and ethical mediator is to help guide the parties and their counsel to a mutually agreeable conclusion. As an impartial third party, I assist each side in considering the strengths and weaknesses of their case and find ways to help them consider other points of view throughout the process.

Helping parties preserve relationships and avoid costly litigation through mediation

Litigating disputes through the court system can take a significant emotional and financial toll on both parties in the conflict. Mediation is increasingly used as a means of alternative dispute resolution to avoid the delay, expense and stress typically involved in litigation. The parties in a dispute often have long-standing relationships, such as business partners or even family members, and mediation allows both parties to voice their concerns and feel they are being heard in a setting that is cooperative rather than adversarial.

Mediation is not compulsory in most situations, and what happens during your session is completely confidential. Not every dispute or case gets resolved during mediation, but most do, and I consider it a privilege and an honor to participate in the process. Even when cases aren’t resolved through mediation, the steps taken during that process often serve as a valuable catalyst for a later agreement that helps the parties avoid costly litigation.
