Henry J. Blum, Esq., of Blum Mediation - a local law firm in Texas - has joined Mediation.com, a leading mediation portal as part of its attorney-mediator network. Blum's partnership with Mediation.com is good news for both parties because the former will benefit from the website's scope and reach, while Blum's experience in complex civil and business dispute cases will be a great asset for promoting the website's business. Blum’s expertise will only add value to the already large portfolio of mediation services offered by Mediation.com.
"I look for ways to facilitate communication in order to promote reconciliation, settlement, or at least understanding among the parties. I am looking forward to working with Mediation.com to help preserve relationships that might otherwise be damaged by the conflict of litigation,” said Mr. Blum. His enthusiasm is shared by the website that promises and delivers the best of legal services to its clients with quality and professionalism. "Mr. Blum's expertise will be a welcome addition to Mediation.com, and a great asset to anyone who comes to us seeking help," says Tom Pronesti, the website's Operations Manager.

With over 24 years of legal experience, Mr. Blum has conducted over 3,700 civil mediations in Houston and south Texas, including but not limited to commercial transactions, construction, employment, personal injury and real property.
As a lawyer, Mr. Blum understands the risks and benefits of going to trial but he also understands the benefits of mediation as a way to resolve disputes. He described that, “Effective mediation services can help the parties to understand and meet their interests and, in the proper case, rebuild relationships that may have been damaged in the course of litigation.”
