Other Information

I and my firm members travel throughout the state of Texas and offer mediations, arbitrations, mediator and arbitration training classes and corporate in-house dispute resolution services. We are unique in that our mediations are often performed by two of us (co-mediation) and are gender balanced. Co-mediation and gender balanced mediation involve two or more mediators working together to assist the parties in dispute resolution. Having two mediators with proactive, pragmatic, positive approaches can often bring differing perspectives that promote creative solutions.
