For the past 30 years, Beth Krugler has been on a unique career path leading her to become a top Texas mediator and regular go-to professional when the results really matter.
A Baylor Law School grad, Beth put herself through school utilizing the Master of Science (Psychology) she'd earned years earlier from Texas A&M. First hired by a large and venerable Fort Worth firm to do commercial litigation and later insurance defense, Beth enjoyed learning the legal ins and outs from some of Texas' best litigators.
After a few years of litigating, Beth found she was distracted by her tendency to see not only her own client's perspective, but the opposing party's as well. Thinking she would be better suited for an in-house position, Beth joined a large Fortune 500 corporation, where she was hired to do labor arbitration.
Soon realizing advocating in the arbitration setting was not all that different from litigating in the courtroom, in 1992 Beth opened her mediation firm and it was in this setting Beth's energy, experience and interpersonal skills were fully utilized. Fast forward, she's now successfully resolved over 5400 cases.
Since discovering mediation as her professional niche, Beth's name has appeared on virtually every law-related "Who's Who" published. A Martindale-Hubble AV rated lawyer, Beth has gone on to be named a Super Lawyer by Texas Monthly for several years running, as well as earning spots on the annual "Best Of" lists published by Fort Worth, Texas Magazine, as well as Fort Worth Business Press.
Locally, Beth was elected President of the Tarrant County Bar Association (2003-2004) following which she served in various State-wide positions. Her most prestigious honor to date, however, was receiving the Professionalism Award by the Tarrant County Bar Association in 2013, annually awarded to the lawyer chosen as best exemplifying consistent excellence and professionalism. To Beth, this is not just an honor recognizing past performance, but stands as a personal directive to continue to provide her best efforts in helping litigants and lawyers fully and thoughtfully consider all of their options when facing the uncertainties and expense of litigation.
Personally, since 2016 Beth has successfully completed 31 half marathons and thrives on encouraging other women to cultivate their inner athlete. Likewise, Beth has a passion for supporting live independent music, with Griffin House and Daphne Willis two of her personal favorites. Finally, Beth truly loves the game of baseball, and while delighted with the outcome of the 2023 season, remains somewhat traumatized by Game 6 of the 2011 World Series.
