Ronald Wardell is an accomplished trial lawyer, mediator and arbitrator, having practiced as an attorney throughout the State of Texas since being licensed in 1979. He has specialized in the areas of personal injury litigation, consumer law, products liability and professional liability/ malpractice. Ronald has mediated in excess of 4,,000 cases since 2002 involving national and international disputes, complex legal and coverage issues and multi-party cases encompassing matters of business, commercial, construction, consumer, corporate, employment, franchise, fraud, insurance, landlord/tenant disputes, malpractice, maritime, mass tort, partnership, personal injury, premises, products liability, property and real estate.

A firm believer that there are no problems, only solutions, more than 92% of the cases he has mediated have settled at or shortly following mediation with his continued involvement in the settlement negotiations. It is his expertise, experience and dedication that have allowed his mediation and arbitration practice to thrive. Embraced by the legal community as one of the most highly skilled and well-respected mediators today, he conducts a majority of the ADR proceedings through his office in Houston, though he is regularly called upon to mediate and arbitrate cases throughout Texas.
