The Mediation Center was formed to help meet the litigation and alternative dispute resolution needs of individuals, businesses, and attorneys. It is the first venue of its kind in the Acadiana area. The Center was founded on the principle of providing a cost-effective resource for litigation needs and dispute resolution combined with scheduling policies designed to accommodate busy parties and their attorneys.

An increasing number of depositions and mediation are being held in the Mediation Center. It is widely becoming recognized as the premiere neutral facility in our area. The building is also available for mock jury trials, client conferences, receptions and meetings of legal professional groups and associations. In order to meet specific needs, the building accommodates wireless internet and access to A/V equipment. Members of the Bar staff are also available as support during your engagement of the Center.

We hope you will allow us to indulge you. We promise to provide you with a pleasant experience at this highly accommodating building, which is becoming a sought-after and much booked venue.
