Texas Conflict Coach by Pattie Porter

Patricia Porter

We all have conflict in our lives, some disputes are more explosive and destructive than others. Maybe it is a long-term conflict with your neighbor over the property line, or a parenting plan has gone awry between you and your ex-spouse, or your business partners don't like how the business is run or being run down. In each of these potential scenarios, parties are stuck in a cycle of destruction and contribute to the escalation of the dispute. YOU need help. You have heard about mediation and think it might be worth getting help before things get completely out of control. What now? Where do you find a mediator? You don't want to have to go to court or file a lawsuit. What do you need to know to hire a mediator? How does this work? How much does it cost?

Join Pattie Porter and Zena Zumeta discuss how mediation can be a valuable process in handling your conflict situation privately, confidentially, out of the court system, and give all parties a chance to speak and be heard. More importantly, it supports the parties making their own decisions on how to solve the problem and move forward.
