Other Information

The role of the Mediator or Arbitrator is one of a Neutral.   The Neutral does not and can not provide legal advice to any party or advocate for any party. In particular, a Neutral is not an attorney for, and does not represent, any party to a mediation or arbitration.

We are available to mediate worldwide.

Mediation Briefs should be emailed to the Mediator no later than seven (7) days before the scheduled mediation date.   They may be exchanged or kept confidential as agreed by the parties.

It is best if all parties and insurance representatives appear in person.  If someone will not be attending in person, please advise the Mediator in advance to discuss contact logistics, such as time zone differences.  Video-conferencing can be arranged.

All statements and writings during the mediation process are privileged and confidential, in accord with California and Federal statutes.

In an effort to continually improve our services, a post-mediation survey will be emailed to each participating attorney for anonymous voluntary response.

Your feedback is most welcomed and appreciated. If you have any suggestions, comments or complaints, please advise Ms. Lawler. If you believe that there has been any violation of the Association of Attorney-Mediators’ Ethical Guidelines for Mediators, please click here for information on the AAM grievance procedure.
