In 1997, I participated in a community-based alternative dispute resolution project in Durham County, North Carolina. I completed a mediation certification course to become a certified mediator and began mediating disputes in small claims court in Durham, NC. The program was enriching and fulfilling for me, and provided litigants with smaller disputes an opportunity to resolve those disputes quickly and with reduced expense.
In 2007, I became a certified mediator in Texas. With more than 10 years of litigation experience at the time, and experience working with plaintiffs and defendants in a variety of lawsuits, I launched my mediation practice in 2008. Since then, I have served as a court-appointed mediator for various courts in Dallas.
Beginning in 2013, I am now mediating cases in state and federal courts. I am available to mediate cases anywhere in Texas, with reasonable full-day and half-day rates.
