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
combined with continuing to sit as an assigned (“visiting”) judge when asked.
Although my prior law practice and judicial tenure qualified me legally to conduct mediations, I recognized that mediation may be a somewhat different skill set than that of a trial court judge. Therefore, I have completed both the basic and advanced family mediation certification courses.
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.
