JAMES A. ROBERTSON MEDIATION PRACTICE
Board Certified Family Law Attorney James Robertson understands full well the negative effects that trial litigation can have on a family, especially the children involved.
As a former Brazoria County family law judge, he held the interests of children foremost. He knew that mediation reduces the anger and tension between parents, benefiting their children as well. As a certified mediator, Robertson provides skilled, fair, and impartial divorce mediation as well as other family-related conflict resolution services.
THE MEDIATION PROCESS
Mediation is an alternative way to resolve family disputes that conflicting parties such as divorcing spouses can use – by employing a neutral third party with formal dispute resolution training – to help them reach an agreement on contested issues. The goal is not to determine a winner in the contest, but rather to help the parties reach their own settlement through negotiation.
Experienced mediator James Robertson starts the process by getting communication going between the parties, promoting understanding, compromise, and ultimately, settlement.
WHY CHOOSE MEDIATION?
Everyone has personal information they would rather not have made public and mediation is an informal, confidential and structured process that makes it possible to settle family issues outside the very public and revealing environment of the courtroom.
Both parties can speak freely without worrying about whether the other will later inform the court of anything that occurred during the mediation session. In addition to being less stressful and public than a courtroom trial, mediation is usually less expensive and can be much quicker.
