Lewisville Mediation Attorney
Settle Your Dispute
In its basic sense, mediation involves the use of an independent third person to facilitate a dispute between two people in order to help them come to an agreement.
This may sound simple, but when it comes to legal disputes, a mediator needs to be both a skilled communicator and an expert in the subject at hand. If you are in need of a Texas mediator for a dispute involving family law, personal injury, deceptive trade practices, contract law, or employment law, Dina K. Steele of Steele Law, P.C., can help. Call (214) 333-9393 for a free consultation with an experienced mediator.
Personal Injury Law
As mediation becomes more popular than going to court, many people with a personal injury claim are choosing mediation to break a standoff with an insurance adjustor. When it comes to personal injury, a significant benefit of mediation is forcing your insurance adjustor to become more familiar with you and your case. During mediation, the adjustor sees you as a human being rather than a file on his or her desk, and may become more sympathetic. A skilled mediator will encourage a resolution, allowing you to avoid going to court.
The Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act, more commonly known as the DPTA, is a consumer protection statute that allows people to take action against businesses with false, misleading, or deceptive practices. Examples of such practices include passing off goods or services as those of another business, advertising goods or services but not selling them as advertised (false advertising), and representing goods as new when they are actually used or secondhand. In this case, or in a similar breech of contract case, mediation is a cost-effective way to determine a solution. A knowledgeable mediator will help determine the facts of the situation so that you can accurately demonstrate why you deserve compensation.
Mediation is a common method for resolving employment law disputes, because employers often want to manage the dispute with as few economic, political, and emotional costs as possible. A long litigation process can greatly hurt the morale of management and staff. Examples of employment law issues that can be mediated include harassment, discrimination, and wrongful termination. Because employment law is so strongly based in relationships, there are personal details that a mediator will help outline in order to reach a solution.
