With extensive experience in litigating a wide range of family disputes, John now focuses his practice on mediation in hopes of helping parties attain the help they need with less time and expense.“I believe in the process of mediation because I have seen how it can work for families involved in bitter disputes,” says Powell, a graduate of the University of Tulsa College of Law and father of one. “My advanced legal education in the post-doctoral Master of Laws & Letters (LL.M.) program in Health Law at the University of Houston Law Center has given me the theoretical framework to be a successful mediator, but my experience as a litigator gives me the practical knowledge needed to help families understand what is at stake if mediation fails.”
As a mediator with The Powell Law Firm (http://www.powellfirm.com), Powell divides his legal attention between areas of business representation and Family Law, with extensive experience litigating and mediating divorces, child custody, child support and modifications, adoptions and paternity disputes. For his clients seeking mediation relating to small business setups, he serves as a corporate structure planner and strategic analyst.
Powell acts as the current President of the Brazoria County Bar Association, and is a member of several national professional associations.
Mediation.com maintains the largest database of Mediation-Attorneys and Mediators, and is broken down by areas of expertise, and geographic-location. People are often referred to mediation before they can proceed with formal litigation. This is because it saves valuable court-time in the already jammed legal system.
