Denise has mediated hundreds of civil cases since 2016 both online and in-person. She has resolved issues arising from car accidents, dram shop cases, employment retaliation, discrimination, breach of contract, premises liability, complex commercial cases, easements and title issues, partition of real estate, claims under the Residential Construction Liability Act, commercial lease breaches, and creditor claims in federal receivership proceedings.

As an experienced mediator, Ms. Peterson understands that each mediation has to be adapted for each particular case.  The process has to be fitted to the problem, not the other way around.  Whether this means a site visit for a construction defect claim or splitting a mediation over days as parties are in both Texas and Hong Kong, Ms. Peterson will adapt technologies and processes to the parties' advantage.

Rated as AVPreeminent by Martindale-Hubbell, Ms. Peterson has also been listed as a SuperLawyer since 2020. 

Ms. Peterson is on the mediation panel for the Texas Department of Insurance for medical billing disputes.

Cases can be mediated online, in person, or both.  Ms. Peterson uses the Texas Justice Center in Bellaire for in-person cases unless the parties prefer a different location.
