Texas Mediators Team Up to Offer Gender-Balanced, Effective Alternative to Litigation
Certified and Experienced, Austin Texas Mediators Provide Unique Perspectives, Creative Solutions
Two mediators with proactive, pragmatic approaches bring very different perspectives to the same situation. While we all share a common focus on mediation as the most effective solution, our diverse and extensive professional experience means clients receive creative, out-of-the box thinking.
Mediation can make the difference between a peaceful, cost-effective resolution fully embraced by all parties or a contentious battle that leads to destructive and costly litigation, according to Austin Texas Mediators (ATM). The ATM team of Barbara Allen and Felix Rippy bring a collective 50 years of experience to bear on cases ranging from divorces and personal injury to breach of contract and wrongful termination. Their gender-balanced, diverse perspective is unique among Texas mediators, says Allen.
“Most mediators in the state work solo, and the vast majority are male,” says Allen, pointing to the need for a more balanced viewpoint from professionals trained and certified in the technique. Co-mediation is particularly advantageous in resolving divorce, sexual harassment and employment law cases, she says. “Two mediators with proactive, pragmatic approaches bring very different perspectives to the same situation. While we all share a common focus on mediation as the most effective solution, our diverse and extensive professional experience means clients receive creative, out-of-the box thinking.”
Demand for the firm’s expertise in alternative dispute resolution has increased exponentially since its April 2014 launch, a result of the growing need for mediation services required by the Texas courts prior to a jury trial. The two ATM principals have earned certification from the Texas Association of Mediators, comprehensively skilled in the art of mediation as well as sensitivity training for organizational clients.
The ATM Principals:
Allen, an attorney for more than 30 years, possesses an equally strong business background, leading repositioned companies, turnaround initiatives and brand development programs on an international scale. As founder and CEO of Stabar Enterprises, Allen managed all aspects of the company, including financing, operations and product development, culminating with its successful acquisition by a global conglomerate.
Felix Rippy has earned recognition as the one of most experienced, hard-working family law practitioners and mediators in central Texas, the latest example during the state’s Mediation Settlement Week when he settled twice as many cases as the other participants. Rippy earned a bachelor’s degree from Harvard University, Master’s in Business Administration from Indiana University and graduated from the University of Texas Law School.
