Advocates for Texas Mediation


Kim Kovach and Eric Galton Named Co-Chairs of TAMC

Kim Kovach
Eric Galton

Austin’s Kim Kovach and Eric Galton have been at the forefront of Texas mediation since its inception. They have been ahead of the curve at each juncture of our developing field through their leadership in their respective mediation practices, their roles as teachers and trainers, both privately and in the university setting, and in their leading virtually every mediator organization in the state. TAMC’s Directors are most pleased and proud to announce their joint chairmanship of TAMC for the year beginning September 1, 2018.


TAMC Is My Voice In Austin

When TAMC Vice-President John DeGroote of Dallas built out his ideal mediation suite, we knew he was serious about the future of Texas attorney-mediation. As a statewide leader and past Chair of the State Bar ADR Section, John knows that means TAMC’s protecting us in Austin. Here, at his Dallas office, he explains to Tom Forbes, TAMC’s Governmental Affairs Counsel.

We Must Stay Vigilant

TAMC Board Member Tony Pletcher of Corpus Christi is the model of the ideal Texas attorney-mediator. A civil trial lawyer on both sides of the docket for over 40 years, and an “Advocate” member of the prestigious American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), Tony knows our Texas civil trial system in and out. Tony convincingly urges us to “stay vigilant” in Austin by joining TAMC.

Justice Debra Lehrmann, TAMC's Supreme Court Liaison, Is A Strong Advocate For Texas Mediation

Justice Lehrman

Justice Debra H. Lehrmann has served on the Supreme Court of Texas since 2010 and serves as the Court’s liaison to the Texas Attorney–Mediator Coalition. With a cumulative total of over 30 years of judicial experience, first as a trial judge in Tarrant County, she is an expert in all areas of our civil justice system, from commercial cases to Family Law. From its beginnings in the Texas court system Justice Lehramann has held a passionate interest in promoting the use of mediation. TAMC’s leaders are privileged to meet regularly with the Justice to further the enhancement of attorney-mediation in our state. Justice Lehrmann is shown here with TAMC’s Tom Forbes and Mike Amis.
