Orange County Mediator & Private Judge

Private Dispute Resolution Services

Litigation in California's Courts is not always the most effective method for resolving a legal dispute. Many Courtrooms are burdened with too many cases, and it can take months or even years to resolve what seem like straightforward matters, with added cost and stress. Many people believe that litigation through the Public Courts is their only option for seeking a binding and impartial resolution to their legal problems.

In California, however, parties can utilize alternative dispute resolution services ('ADR') that can offer comparable and even superior dispute resolution services to the Public Court system. Private Judging and Mediation are clear alternatives to litigation in the Superior Courts.

Private Dispute Resolution is an allowable alternative to public litigation. Experienced and well qualified Private Judges and Mediators allow differing parties to custom-tailor their dispute resolution options to meet their own personal needs and goals. These alternatives provide options to a limited public court system. In particular, Private Dispute Resolution can help parties resolve their legal matters more quickly, creatively, and cost-effectively. Moreover, this often means that resolving legal disputes happens without the acrimony, frustration, and dissatisfaction that can accompany traditional adversarial litigation.

Private Dispute Resolution is not just for the affluent. In fact, in many ways, Private Dispute Resolution can save the conventional litigant money because these services are designed specifically to meet the needs of the parties to resolve their legal dispute quickly and efficiently. In addition to financial savings, Private Dispute Resolution can also save substantial time by enabling the parties to avoid a protracted and contentious legal battle.

One particular advantage is that, since these forms of ADR are arranged between or among private parties, all proceedings, hearings, conferences, and sessions are held in a comfortable setting. Commissioner Weinberg is specifically trained to help the parties reach a mutually agreeable resolution to their conflicts.
