Ms. Colabianchi provides alternative dispute services throughout the state of Texas in mediation as a mediator. She has civil case experience and has typically been involved in complex cases involving commercial disputes and family law cases. She believes that, like trial work, preparation is important to success in conducting ADR services. She diligently studies all of the material the lawyers provide and may contact them ahead of the scheduled date to clarify their goals and discuss significant legal issues. And, it is not over until it’s over. Even if the case does not settle on the day of mediation, Ms. Colabianchi continues to work with the parties over the telephone for as long as it takes to get the dispute resolved.
