For the past 9 years, Craig Stokley has served as a court-appointed mediator in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas.  Craig has been appointed in this capacity over 100 times.  Craig takes a hands-on approach to his mediations and spends time understanding the factual and legal issues necessary to give the parties the best chance as settlement.  Craig does not give up, and will work late into the night, or after the mediation is complete in an attempt to resolve the disputes.  He has had success settling complicated cases that oftentimes nobody thinks have a chance at settlement.  These efforts have been recognized by the Dallas Morning News as well as many legal practitioners.
