Dispute Resolution

What is Mediation?
Mediation is a conflict resolution process in which a mediator guides disputants in finding an agreement that works for them.

Who Are The Mediators?
CSP Dispute Resolution Service mediators are carefully selected. Mediators represent a cross-section of people, diverse in culture, profession and background. Requirements for a mediator are: Dispute Resolution Program Act (DRPA) training, formal mediation experience, references, Program Supervisor approval, and approval from the Orange County Superior Courts Committee.

Mediation Benefits
  • High Success Rate! Mediation helps resolve disagreements 80-90% of the time.
  • Mediation is power. In mediation, you determine the outcome of your case, rather than having a third-party (or judge) determine it for you.
  • Problems are dealt with quickly. Typically, mediation can be scheduled within 2-3 weeks and resolved within 3-4 hours.
  • Mediation is a voluntary process. Any party may withdraw from the mediation at any time.
  • Mediation is low cost. Mediation is less costly in comparison to other legal processes.
  • Mediation is confidential. Confidentiality is required for mediators and all disputants. Parties are encouraged to speak truthfully and candidly in order to define the issues in the matter. Confidentiality is governed by the California Evidence Code, Section 1115-1128 and applied ethical standards.
