Why Choose Me as Your Mediator?
I am a retired business executive and engineer with extensive experience in negotiating contracts - 37 years with Shell Chemical Company (affiliate of Shell Oil Company), including 30 years in management positions, plus 11 years as an independent consultant. I have been a regular mediator at the Dispute Resolution Center of Harris County and also at several of the Justice of the Peace Courts in Harris County. I have recently relocated to the Texas Hill Country and am looking to affiliate with the Dispute Resolution Center of Central Texas.
Over 70% of the cases I have mediated resulted in settlements. When both parties enter into mediation with the intent of settling, the probability of a settlement can be over 90%.
I will make the effort to fully understand the issues in dispute, the positions of the parties, and actively seek a resolution of the issues on terms acceptable to the parties, while following the Standards of Practice and Codes of Ethics of the Texas Mediator Credentialing Association and the Texas Association of Mediators, both of which I am a full member in good standing. My objective is to help you achieve a successful resolution of your issues without costly litigation.
