Choosing a mediator in Houston can be difficult by virtue of there being so many to choose from. When seeking the services of a mediator, first determine who is the most qualified and has the legal experience to represent you well. The goal of mediation is to negotiate without the arguing, hassle and time often spent in litigation. Aggressive representation is undesirable in mediation because it works contrary to the philosophy. Someone who knows how to communicate smoothly and easily will stand a much better chance of getting what you deserve than someone who employs abrasive techniques. Should things take on an aggressive tone, the other party is far less likely to negotiate or be willing to meet halfway.
