D Magazine Names John DeGroote among Best Lawyers in Dallas for Mediation

DALLAS – When D Magazine’s editors asked lawyers across North Texas this year who they turn to for efficient, creative and business-minded solutions to complex litigation, respondents listed DeGroote Partners founder John DeGroote among those they turn to. 

DeGroote is named in the mediation and alternative dispute resolution category of the magazine’s 2022 Best Lawyers in Dallas list. It marks his seventh consecutive year to earn the Best Lawyers honor for his work as a mediator and arbitrator. 

DeGroote’s arbitration and mediation practice is the culmination of a distinguished career as a C-level executive, a trustee, and a long-time litigator on both sides of the “v.”. He formed DeGroote Partners to use his unique background and skill set to provide parties in litigation with customized approaches to seemingly intractable legal and business disputes.  

The DeGroote approach to dispute resolution involves early assessment – sometimes in the pre-litigation phase of a dispute when he’s called early enough – along with active involvement and engaging tactics as a neutral. Based in Dallas, DeGroote Partners has a national reach. 

“It’s a real privilege be able to bring parties together and help find solutions to difficult problems,” DeGroote said. “My work as a mediator and as an arbitrator requires that I be viewed as an honest broker for both sides in a dispute. The fact that lawyers who know me and my work have selected me for this recognition is a true honor.” 

The Best Lawyers in Dallas listing is based on a thorough review of peer nominations conducted by D Magazine editors and an anonymous panel of the city’s most respected attorneys. The full listing appears in the publication’s May edition and can be found online at
