Fiduciary Litigation » Mediation and Arbitration
Mediation is often an efficient and effective way to resolve disputes. Trained mediators, such as, Al Golden, who has trained at the ACTEC Effective Probate Mediation Training Program, and Jerry Frank Jones, who attended the University of Texas School of Law Mediation Program, can help parties to reach creative solutions and resolve their disputes in a confidential way. Their extensive experience handling complex estate and trust matters as well as probate and fiduciary disputes and litigation gives Mr. Golden and Mr. Jones an edge in assisting parties to resolve their disputes. They both limit their mediation practice in matters involving fiduciary litigation including wills, probate, guardianship, trusts and powers of attorney.
Arbitration can also be an effective means of resolving fiduciary disputes. Some wills and trusts have mandatory arbitration provisions. In Rachal v Reitz, 403 S.W.3d 840 (Tex. 2013), the Texas Supreme Court upheld the validity of arbitration clauses in trusts. It is assumed that arbitration clauses in wills are also valid. And of course the parties can agree to an arbitration as well.
The same skill set that makes Mr. Golden and Mr. Jones good mediators also makes them excellent candidates for any arbitration involving wills, trusts, probate, guardianships, and powers of attorney.
