Mediation Lawyers in Plano, TX
Resolving Civil Matters Outside of Court
Not all legal matters necessarily lead to a court battle. In fact, the courts in Texas are inclined to order mediation as an alternative means of settling a dispute before proceeding to trial. In many cases, disputes between two parties can be settled through mediation, eliminating the need to spend valuable time and money in litigation.
If you wish to attempt to settle a dispute through mediation, our attorneys at G.J. Chavez & Associates, P.C. can help. Our goal in this process is to help you and the other party arrive at an agreeable resolution. Mediation can be a delicate process, but rest assured that our attorneys have what it takes to help you work out a favorable outcome.

What Happens During Mediation?
Mediation is a process to settle legal disputes without getting the courts involved. In many cases, it’s possible for two parties to reach an agreeable settlement before allowing a judge or jury to decide for them.
At G.J. Chavez & Associates, P.C., our mediators are particularly capable at helping parties involved in family law disputes (divorce, child custody, child support, etc.) come to an agreeable compromise without going to court. We can assist both pro se clients and those who are represented by legal counsel, and our mediators can offer in-person or virtual sessions in increments of half-days or full days to meet your needs.
The mediator’s role – our role, in this case – is to act as an impartial third party that has no stake in either side’s interests. The mediator will facilitate negotiations between the two parties until a compromise is met. “Compromise” is a keyword here because neither side will get everything they want. This is why it’s important to have an open mind and a willingness to be flexible if you wish to pursue mediation.
Benefits of Mediation
Mediation can be used to settle most civil matters, including those involving divorce. As previously mentioned, one of the main benefits of mediation is resolving a legal dispute without getting the courts involved. Litigation is costly in time and money, and very sensitive matters are left in the hands of a judge or jury to decide. With mediation, control over the situation is still very much within the plaintiff and defendant’s hands, as long as both are willing to work out a compromise.
How Long Does Mediation Take?
The duration of mediation depends upon the nature and complexity of a legal dispute, but most settlements can be reached in a single session lasting 4-8 hours.
This is a fairly short amount of time compared to the several weeks, or months, it could take going to trial.
