Los Angeles Mediator David B. Epstein

Partner David B. Epstein has successfully mediated more than100 litigated disputes.  He has trained at the prestigious Strauss Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine, ranked number one in the nation by U.S. News & World Report for more than 11 years, and at the former Los Angeles County Bar Dispute Resolution Service.

With extensive experience as a litigator for both plaintiffs and defendants, Mr. Epstein applies dispute resolution techniques gained through the management of complex cases before state, federal, and appellate courts to his mediation practice.

Mediation can be a very effective tool in nearly any legal situation.  Hiring a mediator to act as a neutral intermediary gives both parties the benefit of having a private, facilitated methodology to reach agreement.   The role of the mediator is to assist the parties in identifying issues and exploring settlement alternatives. A good mediator can facilitate negotiation and dialogue between disputing parties such that, even when no agreement is reached, the mediation process can provide a solid basis for future discussions regarding resolution.

When conducted by an experienced and impartial trial attorney who controls the process while also fostering open communication between the disagreeing parties, mediation can be an effective form of litigation avoidance. Mr. Epstein understands the need to allow both sides to have a say in the final outcome for optimal results.

Mr. Epstein is available to mediate disputes on a wide range of topics in a variety of areas, including:

  • Contract and business disputes
  • Banking and financial services
  • Credit matters
  • Homeowners’ associations
  • Insurance
  • Litigation
  • Mortgage banking (lien priority, purchase, re-purchase, and warehouse lines)
  • Partnership disputes
  • Real estate
  • Title insurance

Mediation can be a successful and equitable form of alternative dispute resolution. Mr. Epstein has the legal experience, impartiality, communication skills, and knowledge necessary to be an effective and successful mediator.
