Description of Practice
Personalized dispute resolution tailored to the needs and desires of the parties. A collaborative rather than adversarial approach to finding peace through a resolution that is acceptable to the participants. I have completed the training required by the State of Texas to mediate Family, Divorce, and Child Custody cases, as well as cases involving Elder and Adult Care.

27 years of practical experience in the dispute resolution process, including conference settlements, mediation, negotiation, and arbitration.
Extensive experience with finding solutions to disputes utilizing various methods. Served as the partisan member on over 60 arbitration panels, successfully negotiated hundreds of labor agreements including a merger between union and non-union entities, satisfactorily preserving desired elements of both preexisting contracts. Settled literally thousands of disputes during settlement conferences.

I have learned through experience that a resolution developed by the parties is far superior to one imposed by a third party (judge, jury arbitrator). I am confident that the techniques I have studied and utilized will most often achieve the desired collaborative result.
The minimum retainer is $300 per party and covers eight working hours of mediation. Subsequent sessions are $75 per hour per party. If the Peacemaker is obligated to travel more than 25 miles beyond the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas area, reasonable and necessary expenses will be added to the amount. There is no extra charge for weekend or after-hours sessions.
We believe that justice is a right, not something that must be fought for. Too often, the adversarial legal system does not produce mutually satisfactory results. Certified by the National Association of Certified Mediators. Member of the Texas Association of Mediators
