Welcome

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.

Preparing for a family law mediation

One of the best preparations the attorney can do is to have a draft Decree or Order ready. The mediator will prepare a detailed Mediated Settlement Agreement but the best-case scenario is to have the agreed decree or order ready to execute.

Feel free to send your document in by email where it can be edited, finalized and executed before you leave the mediation center.
