  • Mediation IS Effective: - Mediation is arguably the most effective way for parties to reach a settlement, especially when they employ a well-trained and skilled mediator to act as a neutral who actively engages the parties in negotiating a resolution to their conflict. Frequently, parties find that mediating a case can be faster, more cost effective and efficient than direct negotiations between the parties. It is much more effective to have a trained and skilled mediator working diligently with the parties to determine where an agreement is possible. If there is a deal to be found, a good mediator will find it and effectively guide the parties to reach the terms of their own settlement.

  • Brent D. Peterson, Attorney and Trained Mediator:
    Attorney -
    As a licensed attorney for over 14 years, Mr. Peterson has helped his clients both in transactional practice (by drafting high quality legal documents) and in effectively representing clients in contested civil and family litigation matters. Over time, Mr. Peterson has witnessed the challenges that litigation has brought to his clients, in terms of financial and emotional costs, even when there has been a clear "win" in court. Thus, in representing a client in any civil or family litigation matter, Mr. Peterson works tirelessly to first seek out solutions that limit a client's costs and the emotional toll of litigating the matter only by virtue of court hearings and trials.

    Mediator - Mr. Peterson received his mediator training at the USC Gould School of Law, earning a post-doctoral certificate in ADR after more than 500 hours of course work. At USC, Mr. Peterson was engaged in a rigorous curriculum of graduate law courses alongside other law students, attorneys and judges, which provided him with greater theoretical and practical knowledge to effectively resolve litigated and pre-litigation cases. Mr. Peterson further honed his mediation skills during his clinical work at USC as a mediator in the Los Angeles Superior Court through USC's partnership with the Center for Conflict Resolution.

  • About Brent Peterson: - Mr. Peterson was raised in San Luis Obispo County and is a proud graduate of Atascadero High School. Mr. Peterson later graduated (in the top 10% of his class) from UC San Diego, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in French Literature (2000). After working briefly for a
    telecom company in San Diego, Mr. Peterson's desire to become an attorney led him to California Western School of Law where he earned a degree of Juris Doctor in 2005. That same year, Mr. Peterson returned to the Central Coast to practice law. More recently, and inspired by his late father, David C. Peterson's legacy as one of the profession's greatest mediators, Mr. Peterson returned to law school at the University of Southern California in order to transition into Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) by way of mediation. Mr. Peterson received his Graduate Certificate in ADR from USC's Gould School of Law and is a candidate for the LLM degree (2021).
