The Gonzalez fight lives on. However, in these unprecedented times whether your rich, middle class or poor mediation is the answer. Simply put the courthouse is too onerous. The costs are hard to predict. You may get reset 3x before you have a hearing which you’re paying for your lawyers. Mediation is also less taxing mentally because you’re in the office and the mediator goes back and forth. I think the military have been through so much that it’s the best way to move through the painful experience at a lot less expense.
Something I do not know whether you know is my Grandfather was the reason all the military bases are here. Henry B. Gonzalez, U.S. Congressman from Texas from 1961-1999. Then my Uncle Charlie Gonzalez won from 1999-2013. My Grandfather’s name is on the convention center. Unfortunately, a lot of the youth do not know very much about him. Our Federal Judge, Fred Biery, said one time to me that all he had to know was my last name to know I am a fighter.
Honestly, what I see about a lot of the military lawyers is that they can be unreasonable and it’s not necessary. People need to mediate and move through more methodically because it’s less on the pocketbook or can be less mentally taxing.
