Her 25 years of experience in civil, family, and business law in the roles of trial attorney, mediator, arbitrator, and District Judge have enabled Judge Wooten to obtain a wide range of knowledge, mediation skills, and resolution techniques.  As a result, Judge Wooten has a reputation for being principled, dedicated, and an effective mediator who gets results even in the toughest disputes.

In the last 9 years alone, Judge Wooten has handled over 1,300 mediations!
