The concept of mediation is as old as humankind. People have always sought the counsel or assistance of neutral third parties to help resolve arguments. We do so to limit arguments, to gain perspective, and to hear what knowledgeable others may think about our plight, and our best course of action to resolve it.
As a legal tool over the last 30 years, mediation has gained great popularity as a dispute resolution tool because it has proven over and over again to usually be the last, best chance of resolution of one’s legal problems. Mediation now plays a prominent role in most civil, business, and family law cases, and has contributed overwhelmingly to the oft-quoted statistic that “98% of all cases settle prior to trial.” This is because mediation proves to be a ready means of obtaining financially prudent results without the many stresses of litigation and ultimately without the panic-inducing theater that is a trial in front of a jury.
Attorneys Hastings Hanshaw, Hannah Stroud, and Sarah M. Rose, all well versed in their respective fields of law, also offer comprehensive mediation services for cases pending all across Texas.
Hastings Hanshaw offers mediation services in all civil and business litigation matters, including contract and fraud claims, partnership disputes general civil litigation and employment law. With almost 20 years of civil and business litigation experience, both with larger firms and his own firm, Hastings understand the importance of mediation and the true benefits it can offer.
“Having litigated and tried cases all across Texas, I am acutely aware of the costs litigation can take on the litigants. Costs that can be measured in both monetary terms and in psychological ones. The certainty that settlement affords is the great equalizer in most cases to offset those costs. I love solving problems. And I love achieving resolution of problems when no one thinks it will be possible.” – Hastings Hanshaw.
Hannah Stroud and Sarah M. Rose have, collectively, been practicing family law for 17 years, primarily in Collin, Denton, and Dallas counties. Understanding the strain that trial can take on a family, both Hannah and Sarah believe that mediation offers the chance to create solutions that would not be available in court. Offering cost effective mediation services, both Sarah and Hannah look forward to mediating your case or your client’s case.
In addition to family law cases, Sarah M. Rose also offers mediation services for guardianship and probate matters. With a broad base of experience in these matters, Sarah knows that mediation is often the best way – economically and emotionally – to resolve a case.
