Securing Favorable, Cost-Effective Outcomes Through Mediation
During his 20-year legal career, attorney Kevin S. Mullen has litigated and mediated employment, business, unfair competition, and tort disputes of all kinds, sometimes wearing the white hat, and sometimes wearing the black hat. Which is the plaintiff and which is the defendant is in the eye of the beholder. He draws on this experience to help parties resolve their disputes.
Taking An Active Role In Resolving Disputes
As a mediator, Kevin prides himself on being more than a number carrier or shuttle diplomat. He listens carefully, speaks persuasively, pushes, pulls, questions, encourages, discourages, begs, pleads, strong arms, frightens, soothes, prognosticates, explores, develops solutions and generally does whatever it takes to ethically facilitate resolution. He loathes impasse and exhausts every avenue in pursuit of the deal.
Kevin’s Qualifications And Training
Kevin is on the Roster of Neutrals for The Scheinman Institute on Conflict Resolution and a graduate of Cornell University ILR School’s prestigious employment law mediator training program in New York City, New York. He is also a neutral for First Court, a unique online mediation and case assessment service. Kevin routinely mediates cases for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and private litigants.
The Mullen Firm PLLC offers virtual and in-person mediations. The Austin office can comfortably host mediations or Kevin will come to you. Mediation rates, which include review of submitted materials and preliminary calls with counsel, are as follows:
- Half-day (4 hours) = $1,500 ($750/party)
- Full day (8 hours) = $2,900 ($1,450/party)
When parties are open to pursuing out-of-court remedies for legal conflicts, mediation may provide a cost-effective, lasting solution. Because the parties work together to resolve their issue, they are more likely to abide by the terms of their agreement, minimizing the likelihood of future disputes. This approach helps parties avoid involving the court, which can be an expensive and time-consuming process.
