Houston TX Mediation

What is Mediation?

In the process of mediation, a trained mediator serves as a neutral third party.  A mediator meets with opposing sides to help facilitate communication, negotiation and compromise between the parties, working towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution of their dispute and avoiding continued litigation and court involvement.  The confidential process of mediation allows each party to control the outcome of their dispute by engaging in negotiation and compromise, and eliminating the stress, strain and costs of contentious litigation.

Many times the best interest of clients may be met by facilitating alternative dispute resolution such as mediation before reaching court and certainly before reaching trial. At the time when sometimes life-changing and critical decisions are being made, it is vital to reduce the emotion of highly charged situations, so that practical and fair solutions can be agreed upon in a business-like manner with all parties feeling like they have been heard and their concerns addressed.  While there are many instances where mediation can be beneficial to parties in a dispute, the following are just a few of the parties who may benefit from mediation:   divorcing spouses or separating life partners, beneficiaries of an estate or trust, employers and employees, landlords and tenants, businesses and vendors on either end of a contract dispute, consumers, neighboring individuals, ex-spouses and business partners.

Ms. Schnurr, a trained and skilled mediator since 1993, typically charges a flat fee, per party, for either a 1/2 day mediation, which is typically from 9:00am to 1:00pm or from 1:00pm to 5:00pm, or for a full day mediation, from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
