Bruce Wallace

Founder & President

With over 30 years of successful negotiation experience, Bruce Wallace is keenly aware of the significant importance of understanding each side’s motivations and issues. As your mediator, Bruce’s primary objective is to champion and facilitate the mediation process. This process allows each participant the opportunity to voice their position and express their needs. It’s our job to uncover each participants’ underlying interests so we can begin to navigate towards a resolution which will satisfy as many of these interests as possible.

Years of experience

Successful mediation requires honed listening skills. Patience is extremely important. Successful mediators don’t force their opinions or subject matter expertise into the conversation. For these and other reasons, some of the most successful mediators are not attorneys. With all the legal positioning happening around your situation it might be extremely beneficial to work with someone who is not jaded by the legal aspects of your dispute.

Honed listening skills

Bruce Wallace became a certified mediator through the University of Texas at Austin School of Law and served on staff with the Austin Dispute Resolution Center. He graduated Baylor University with a BA in Communications, a minor in Business, and earned his CLU (the equivalent of a Masters in Financial Services) from the American College of Financial Services in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. Bruce served as the senior Vice President and Head of Strategic Distribution for ING, US preparing for their IPO to Voya; and, served as the Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for National Western Life, an Austin, Texas based life insurance company.
