Dedicated to the peaceful, constructive and efficient resolution of disputes.

Lakeside Mediation Center

Lakeside Mediation Center has decided to permanently lend its physical office to Mozart’s Coffee while continuing to mediate virtually. As of July 1, 2021, we are still not conducting in-person mediations due to health and safety concerns and will be mediating exclusively over virtual formats, primarily via Zoom. We will provide an update on our website when we believe that in-person mediation is a safe option.

The Lakeside Mediation Center provides a wide range of flexible and efficient conflict resolution services for businesses, governmental entities and individuals. Services may be provided onsite or we are available to travel to you. Just one call to the Center provides easy access to our entire panel of dispute resolution experts with award-winning experience in solving disputes creatively, constructively and confidentially.

Recognizing that some parties benefit from interactions in a tranquil, neutral location, the peaceful environment of the Lakeside Mediation Center was designed for this specific purpose. The Center offers seven spacious mediation rooms with wireless Internet access overlooking the shores of Lake Austin.  Five minutes from downtown Austin and only 20 minutes away from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, the Center is an ideal location to serve all dispute resolution needs. Click here for a map to our location.

We want you to be as comfortable as possible during your mediation and proudly serve Mozart’s fine coffee and pastries.  For full day mediations, we provide lunch from some of Austin’s most popular restaurants at no extra charge. We strive to provide excellent service in an extraordinary setting at very competitive rates.
