In my 20 years of practice, I have handled thousands of personal injury cases. During that time, be it from a plaintiff or an insurance company adjustor, I’m always asked the same question: “what’s this case worth?” My answer is always: “this case is worth whatever a jury says it’s worth”. Since only about 5% of cases actually go to trial, waiting to see what a jury awards can be expensive, time consuming, and impractical. Mediation can you save you that time and money and take away the uncertainty of what 12 strangers will decide about your case.
Over the last 20 years, I have worked on both the plaintiff and defense side of the bar. I have defended insureds and insurance companies. I have represented plaintiffs who have suffered minor soft tissue sprains and strains and those who have suffered catastrophic, life-changing injuries. I have tried cases in Dallas County, Tarrant County, and across North Texas. I have worked with solo practitioners, lawyers in large international firms, and hundreds of mediators. This knowledge and experience has taught me what works and what does not work in getting these kinds of cases resolved.
Mediation provides all parties with the chance to share their cases with each other and discuss the strengths and weaknesses in their respective cases in a professional and respectful environment. My job is to use that information and my experience to help the parties arrive at a settlement that no one is thrilled about but all can live with. That’s why it’s call a mediated settlement and not a “mediated victory”.
My mediation practice is located at 6060 North Central Expressway, Suite 600, Dallas Texas. Parking is plentiful and free. I charge $300 per party for a two-hour mediation, $400 per party for ½ day mediations, and full day mediations at $750 per party.
