Judge Gil Jones, Credentialed Distinguished 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. I now practice solely as a certified mediator and in other areas of dispute resolution; and neither practice law nor any longer sit as a visiting judge.

When you are ready, the attorney taking the lead in booking a mediation session can go directly to the Schedule Now page for detailed guidance, or click on the Schedule Appointment button below. Clients should take a look at the For The Clients page for advance information and can pay be credit card using the button below.

If you already have a mediator, I am also available to consult with attorneys on mediation strategies and preparation. Lastly, I am also available for single arbiter arbitrations.

Contact me at  or by phone to 830-201-0050.

Mediations are conducted at 1307 2nd Street, Suite D, Marble Falls, TX.

Some general information:

  • Come dressed comfortably. We will be casual.
  • For full day mediations lunch will be provided.
  • Coffee, water and light snacks are available.
  • Wi-fi is available.

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 a Distinguished Mediator and I 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 mediation suite at 1307 Second Street, Suite D, Marble Falls. (directions and maps), but at other locations if needed. While I primarily mediate and arbitrate cases from Burnet County, Llano County, Blanco County and San Saba County, I am happy to also mediate in Travis County, Williamson County, Brown County, McCullough County, Gillespie County, Kendall County, and beyond.

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.

Without a doubt, Mediation Makes the Difference™ as do all forms of dispute resolution.

The Forceful Mediator

Is the forceful mediator effective? I recently read an article that included the following invective:

There are a few self-styled elite mediators who work in New York City and claim success through forcefulness, their ability to whup good lawyers into submission. They are mainly retired judges who rely on their high status, rather than mediation skills, to generate work. Since this forcefulness is claimed to be effective, we must ask: Does it really work? (emphasis added) Kichaven, J. (2017, February). The Myth Of The Forceful Mediator.
