Mediating at DRS North Texas

What to expect:

Mediation is not a legal or judicial hearing; rather, it is an informal meeting in which the mediators will help facilitate the exchange of information between you and the party with whom you have a dispute. Most of our session are conducted in half a day by two mediators, unless you request a Level II mediation.

During the session, each party will have a chance to be heard in a neutral setting. The mediators will encourage a respectful dialogue between the parties with the goal of determining a suitable agreement to resolve the dispute.



  • Bring all relevant information.
  • Joint and private sessions held.
  • Written agreement is binding.
  • Submit the agreement to the Court.
  • All information is confidential.


Clients: Comments & Testimonials

“The mediators were great and did their job very well. The staff was welcoming and pleasant.”

“Very professional and kind at the same time. Everything was explained thoroughly. All parties were addressed equally with respect.”

“This was a very challenging case with complicated facts, multiple parties […] Somehow, despite all the challenges the mediators found a way to get this case settled! They went over and above what they needed to do, both in time and in effort, and got the job done. We are very pleased and greatly appreciative!”
