Beth was able to help the parties reach a resolution in a difficult case where a mother was grieving the death of her child. I truly believe mediation would have failed but for her hard work and ability. She was able to see the issues both side needed addressed to resolve the case. Beth is a supremely skilled and talented mediator. 
Mike Stewart (The Simmons Firm) Alton, IL

Today, it is hard for any plaintiff's lawyer to get a case settled. Defendants know juries often look for reasons not to award money, but yet most plaintiffs think their case is the exception. To get your case settled for the right money, you need an experienced mediator that you can trust. Beth Krugler is that mediator. Her years of practice as a lawyer and a mediator provide the experience and knowledge of the business to garner your trust and settle your case even in this tough environment. 
Steve Young (Tavormina & Young, LLP) Houston, TX
Beth is not just someone who passes offers back and forth between the parties, she works hard to understand the issues in the case and to assist the parties in meaningful discussions concerning the value of their claim. 
David Nix (The Nix Firm) Wichita Falls, TX
Beth's experience, compassion, and psychology background allows her to connect with clients empowering them to feel as if they've had their "day in court" while also achieving closure at the end of the day. The bottom line—Beth gets deals done. 
Jason Stephens (Stephens Anderson Cummings) Fort Worth, TX
Beth always has good insight on the issues and remains patient. Best of all, she has been very successful settling some difficult cases that I thought would not settle. 
Robert T. Walls (Hoagland, Farish & Palmarozzi) Irving, TX
Beth has a unique way of managing expectations, effectively dealing with sensitive subject matter, difficult and/or emotional clients, and adversity between the parties and/or counsel. She gets the job done. 
Rick Byrne (Ekvall & Byrne) Dallas, TX
Beth thinks through disputes, instead of merely looking at the problem. If I have a complex case--complicated by issues, timing, scale, sensitivity, personality, or law--I go to Beth. She is dogged and insightful about her avid pursuit of true resolution. 
Harry Jones (Littler Mendelson) Dallas, TX
Beth is always at the top of my list for mediators as she delivers the best chance for settlement.
David Sargent (Hermes Sargent Bates) Dallas, TX
This case was a difficult situation to resolve for a number of reasons. Excellent job in bringing this matter to a conclusion. It was questionable to me that we would be able to reach settlement. You [Beth] obviously brought the Plaintiffs to understand their problems without their becoming so defensive as to walk away from a resolution. 
Roy Price, Longview, TX

When contacting us, please let us know:

  1. Names of all parties, along with the style of the case;
  2. Counsel contact information for each party (in the event there is a party who will not be attending, we need to know the non-participating party’s name and trial counsel);
  3. Nature of the case;
  4. Requested format (Full Day, Half Day Complex or Half Day Simple);
  5. Court imposed deadlines, if any; and
  6. Any other matter that may impact our getting your case set for mediation.

If you’d like to put a date on hold while you confirm with clients and opposing parties, we can hold your requested date for 24 hours. Because other attorneys are often looking at the same date you’re considering, we’re limited as to when we’re able to extend that hold time but please know, we completely understand that when dealing with multiple parties and multiple schedules, confirming a date can often be a real challenge. We will always work with you the best we can.

 

FORT WORTH

(primary location)

Full Day
$1500 per party

9:30 am – 5:00 pm
(working lunch provided)

Half Day Simple*

*Half Day Simple is workable for cases involving two parties, when the amount in controversy is limited and the matters in dispute are relatively simple, such as the low impact MVA with primarily complaints of soft tissue damage.
Available from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm or 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

*Half Day Complex is required for all employment and probate matters, personal injury cases involving allegations of medical expenses in excess of $100,000 and/or death or serious permanent injury. It may also be the best choice for other cases that, for whatever reason, require more time to resolve than the Half Day Simple format allows.
Available from either 9:00 am to 1:30 pm or 1:30 pm to 6:00 pm.

(If you have a case that both sides agree is resolvable within two hours or less, please contact our offices. We set aside approximately one day each month for the resolution of these very simple cases; Angie will let you know all available upcoming dates and times.)
