An Alternate Path to Resolution
There are special occasions, as stipulated by the Texas Civil Practices and Remedies Code, where parties may, with court approval, retain the services of a former District or County Judge in order to resolve a civil or family dispute. Such a former, or “Special” Judge may then oversee proceedings as an alternative means to resolving disputes that doesn’t involve a traditional courtroom trial.
Under the right circumstances, Trial by Special Judge provides a variety of advantages to parties seeking dispute resolution. As a former Texas State District Judge in Denton, Judge Isaacks is fully qualified and available to serve clients in the North Texas area in this capacity.
A Strong Third Option
By uniquely offering the privacy associated with ADR yet retaining the ability to appeal that typically only courtroom trials provide, Trial by Special Judge remains a strong third option for any qualifying parties facing unfavorable arbitration or litigation proceedings.
