Dallas County Alternative Dispute Resolution

Dallas County Alternative Dispute Resolution "The purpose of the DCDRC is to serve the residents of Dallas County by offering them an affordable alternative to resolving disputes." A milestone was achieved on November 8, 2011 when the Commissioners Court approved Court Order #2011-1938 establishing the creation of a Dallas County Dispute Resolution Center (DCDRC).

This new program began on January 3, 2012 with cases being referred from the Civil District Courts, Family District Courts, County Courts at Law, Probate Courts, and Justice of the Peace Courts. Only cases in which the parties truly cannot afford mediation services will be referred to this program by the Courts. This program has not been established to compete with the private mediation market, bu

I want to thank the Honorable Monica Purdy, Presiding over the 95th Civil District Court in Dallas County, State of Texas for being our special guest on today. She she stated the most important quality a mediator can have is to be relatable. The second important quality to treat others like you would want to be treated. These are rules to live by. Thank you again Judge Purdy and all of our special guest who joined the virtual meeting on today. Have a great weekend.
