Tough Mediator. Wise Counselor.
Bea Ann Smith has been a trained mediator for twenty years and served as a justice on the Third District Court of Appeals in Texas for sixteen years. After retiring from the court, she has served as a mediator, arbitrator, and appellate consultant to lawyers.  For the same period, Bea Ann has been a dedicated professor of undergraduates and law students at the University of Texas, learning as much about the law and writing from her students as they hopefully learn from her. She continues to be involved in judicial education nationally and internationally.
Bea Ann has been an angler for about as long as she has been a mediator. She suggests that flyfishing has taught her several skills she relies on to conduct a successful mediation: Be patient, pay close attention, and stay with the process until you unravel the most hopeless knot or land the most wily trout.
