Mediation & Arbitration


People hire lawyers, not law firms...

Knowledge of the evidence code and trial experience are vital credentials for an effective mediator or arbitrator.

A successful mediator or arbitrator is one who has substantial experience analyzing the merits of controversies, has participated fully in the alternative dispute resolution process, and has taken matters to trial and appeal. Knowledge of the evidence code, trial practice and trial advocacy are indispensable credentials for a mediator or arbitrator to be effective. Tim Petumenos specializes in Alternative Dispute Resolution in instances when clients want independent neutral evaluation of the controversy and are not merely looking for the dispatch of offers and counter-offers between the parties.
