Mediation is a cost-effective and time-saving alternative to taking a dispute to court. It’s proven so effective that Texas courts encourage – and sometimes order – parties to attempt a mediated settlement before setting a date for trial. You can choose to try mediation at any time before you go to court, even if you’ve already begun litigation.
In North Texas, the law firm of Albin Oldner Law, PLLC stands out as a provider of mediation services for a wide range of family law, civil law and business law matters. Two of our attorneys are mediators with extensive training and experience in mediation methods.
The mediation process is private and confidential. A trained neutral professional helps the parties explore possible solutions to their conflict. The mediator does not make any decisions nor does the mediator act as judge or legal advisor. Rather, she/he facilitates the exchange of information and settlement alternatives between parties, promoting understanding and resolution.
The mediation sessions usually take place in our Frisco law office. Your attorney can represent you throughout the process if you choose.
During a session, our Frisco mediator talks privately to each party to determine where to focus the negotiations. These conversations are entirely confidential — our mediator is forbidden from disclosing information to the other party or to the court. The mediator then meets with both sides together to help you resolve the issues in dispute. At the conclusion of a successful mediation, the terms of your agreement are drafted into a settlement contract that a judge can approve.
