He had similar brief introductions in the first couple years of law school, followed by a much deeper dive into mediation training and mediated clinic and court cases in his final year of law school. He has integrated mediation in legal proceedings ever since. After a half dozen years combining mediation and municipal law and general private practice, Travers began to limit his practice primarily to Alternative Dispute Resolution beginning in 1998. He has now mediated thousands of cases, including civil, family, probate, and criminal proceedings.

Travers has also served as a mediation coach, trainer, and mentor since the mid-90s. He was an adjunct professor for the DU Law School Mediation Clinic in 1996.
