Meet the Founder

She has over two decades of experience working as an advocate in Bangalore Courts & Tribunals, etc. She observed that many cases could have stayed outofcourt if only the parties simply talked it out. Cases in courts do not settle fast but they sure break families and drain the pockets of the people involved. All cases do not have the legal aspect they can be nipped in the bud. This people aspect of law triggered an interest in mediation in Meena. She believes that anyone can learn the skill to help others resolve matters. They don't have to be lawyers to resolve issues. She created and tested out the training based on the international standards and practice of mediation and crafted it to suit the Indian audience. She believes that anyone can learn to Mediate and has successfully trained several people in the craft of mediation. Another way to nip court cases in the courts is to empower people to resolve matters by themselves or through a neutral mediator.

Meena was nominated for the Prestigious Shaamnaad Basheer Prize by Agami, An Asoka University Initiative "No Changemaker Left Behind", for her work of reaching Mediation to the grassroots and the non-legal community.
