What We Do

Compromise. Solutions. Success.

Legal disputes can cause an unnecessary amount of stress for even the most sophisticated.  The disputes take up time, energy, and money over the course of several months. Here at Levi Benton & Associates PLLC, we pride ourselves in aiding adverse parties in finding the best and most efficient ways to resolve conflict. Through mediation, we search for compromise between all parties involved. We mediate all types of disputes, from complex business matters to settling a dispute between a professional athlete and his partner about post break up ownership of a dog. 

We will mediate your dispute in person or by video conference in Houston, Texas or anywhere in the world!

We also serve as public finance counsel.

Areas of Practice


"Mediation involves a neutral person, the mediator, who guides parties through communication to promote compromise, settlement, or understanding. A mediator may not place their own views or decisions on the issue at hand. Instead, it is up to the mediator to help you and the other party to come to an agreement. A mediator may not tell the other side what you have discussed with them and must keep your conversations confidential, unless you agree otherwise."
- Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code 154.023, Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code 154.053.


"Arbitration is a process where each party or their attorney presents their case to a neutral person, the arbitrator. The arbitrator then makes a decision about your case. Unlike mediation, the arbitrator uses their judgment based on the facts presented to come to a decision. A mediator does not provide a decision, but helps both parties reach an agreement on their own."

- Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code 154.027.

Public Finance

"Public finance is the management of a country’s revenue, expenditures, and debt load through various government and quasi-government institutions. A country’s financial position can be evaluated in much the same way as a business’s financial statements."
