just a program that is compliant with the Florida Supreme Court Administrative Order.

Florida requires mediation for every homestead property filed with the court for foreclosure, and prescribes a specific, but minimum process.

The management team of the Foreclosure Mediation Program will offer the customary mediation services including scheduling coordination, providing the venue and the certified mediator, and will also provide a management system which allows servicers, GSE's, and law firms to have streamlined scheduling and coordination.

The Mediation Center Southeast is headquartered in Altamonte Springs, Florida, and provides mediation services statewide, and will be under the direction of attorney Leanne Levett, who developed the program.

Attorney Levett was instrumental in developing the first foreclosure mediation program in Florida in the 18th Circuit, in Seminole County, Florida, and has expanded the program to include all circuits by request of the parties.
