Judge Gil Jones, Credentialed Advanced Mediator (TMCA1) & Retired District Judge

After 16 wonderful years serving the people of the 33rd Judicial District of Texas, I left the active bench on December 31, 2012. In January a new career began, one of dispute resolution through mediation and arbitration combined with continuing to sit as an assigned (“visiting”) judge when asked.

When you are ready, the attorney taking the lead in booking a mediation session can go directly to the Schedule Now page. Clients should take a look at the For The Clients page.

Although my prior law practice and judicial tenure qualified me legally to conduct mediations, I recognized that mediation requires a different skill set than that of a trial court judge. Therefore, I have completed both the basic and advanced family mediation certification courses. I am Credentialed by the Texas Mediator Credentialing Association as an Advanced Mediator and adhere to its Code of Ethics. You can see what others are saying about my services on the reviews page.

Mediations are usually conducted at my new mediation suite at 1307 Second Street, Suite D, Marble Falls. (directions and maps)

It is my hope that this site will aid the process of dispute resolution in Texas through interesting articles, comments from astute readers and links to some of the excellent blogs by other mediators.

When I was sitting as the juvenile court judge I would bring the juvenile and parent(s) (yes, sometimes there were two parents present) up close to the bench and have them look at the meth-face portfolio I had assembled. The parents were usually in tears and the kids were moved, at least in the moment.

I know of no more addictive or destructive drug. Many people are hooked on one hit. One.
