Legal issues can arise out of nowhere, bringing tremendous change for you and your loved ones. These changes don't always have to be contentious, though. For Texas residents who worry about the effect of combative litigation on their life and livelihood, and who wish to show respect to each other instead of fighting tooth and nail in the courtroom, mediation might be the answer.

Here at J. Torrez Law, P.C., I am committed to helping you seek a resolution to your case before you ever step foot in the courtroom. If you live in the Austin area, as well as Williamson County, Hays County, Bastrop County, or Caldwell County, reach out to my firm to start pursuing real solutions when you need them the most.

What Is Mediation?

Mediation is the legal process in which a neutral third party helps people seek resolutions to their disputes. In that way, it’s significantly different from cases that end up in court. At J. Torrez Law, P.C., I've spent more than two decades helping individuals and families in Texas find common ground and a path forward through a variety of complicated legal problems. I am able to offer my support with these issues and more:

Everyone deserves a chance to emerge from a legal dispute with their emotions and pride intact. Let me help give you that chance. Set up a consultation with me today to learn more about the kinds of cases I mediate.



Why Choose Mediation over Litigation in Austin?

During incredibly frustrating times, it can be tempting to turn to litigation as the solution. Occasionally, taking your case to court can’t be avoided—but it’s always worth considering the benefits of a more collaborative approach: 

  • You’ll sidestep contentious & public court battles. Legal issues like divorce can take an emotional toll on you and your family. Resolving things outside of the courtroom may not completely eliminate the stress, but it can help you, your family, and your children move forward with greater peace of mind.

  • You’ll gain more control. For example, in a mediated divorce, you and your spouse are both in the driver’s seat. Although a neutral third party helps you negotiate, you communicate directly with one another to come to a mutually beneficial resolution.

  • You’ll spend less money. You’ll hire one attorney who facilitates the process, instead of two attorneys pitted against one another in court. 

  • You’ll save time. Everyone is working toward the same goal in mediation. This saves time that would have otherwise been wasted in lengthy litigation.

If you’re thinking about litigation, you might consider a different path. Schedule a free initial consultation with me in Austin to begin exploring the possibility of a mediated divorce or any other kind of mediation.
