Mediation is an effective tool to resolve disputes.

It has been built into many contracts, and most courts in Texas require the parties in a lawsuit to mediate prior to trial. Throughout her legal career, Connie has attended mediation on behalf of the Plaintiff, the Defendant, in person, via Zoom, and via telephone. She has sat next to her clients, insurance adjusters, and also by herself, being told “just call me if you need me.” She knows the behind-the-scenes on both sides that can drive a resolution and derail it.

What’s more, Connie knows that the personality and style of the mediator can sometimes be the tipping point to make or break a settlement. So while her outgoing and warm personality will remain a constant, her mediation approach will naturally change in accordance with the parties’ needs. Sometimes the parties will benefit from an opening session, a double-blind proposal, or even a bracket. Sometimes the parties need to be in person, and other times, a phone call or Zoom will work. She knows her role in the mediation is that of a neutral facilitator – the parties are in charge.
