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.
Our team of Mediation Attorneys are all well versed in their respective fields of law, and also offer comprehensive mediation services for cases pending all across Texas.
