About Douglas

Hi, I’m Douglas Havens, owner of Meaningful Mediation. As a national certified mediator, I provide Christian based mediation to families including probated cases, church organizations, and other businesses. I have mediated private cases as well as civil court cases. Conflict is an unavoidable part of our daily life; a foreseeable result of our highly complex, competitive, and often litigious society. Whether in personal interactions or business relations, each of us have our own ideas, opinions, and needs. Conflict is inevitable. It’s not always the big things that lead to the biggest conflicts. Over time even the smallest of issues can explode into a huge fight. Either big or small, Meaningful Mediation is here to help. I have over 20 years of experience in the law enforcement and legal field, an AAS Paralegal degree, and I teach mediation and paralegal studies at a local college. As a retired detective and mediator I have studied human behavior and personal relationships. As a police officer and paralegal I have a unique perspective of the law. Don't waste your time going to court. Mediation offers a distinctive and different concept for addressing conflict, with many benefits, which include • Mediation IS court binding • A lot cheaper than going to court • You have a voice in the process • Private (Everything in court is public record) • Confidential • Faster results than court • Both side benefits from the dispute Type of cases I have mediated: Divorces, parental rights, family law cases, animal abuse, animal custody, credit card civil suit, civil theft suit, church conflicts, neighborhood disputes, property disputes, landlord/tenant disputes, roommate conflicts, and work place conflicts. I also assisted on an elder abuse and probate case. I am an associate member of the Colorado Bar Association #509196, a proud member of the Colorado State Investigators Association (CSIA), and I volunteer for the Jefferson County Mediation Program.
