Alternative Dispute Resolution
As the 2018 Chair of the OC Bar Association Alternative Dispute Resolution Section, David Ezra has nearly 15 years of mediation experience. David also applies his wealth of knowledge and experience as an insurance coverage attorney, who has compelled the settlement and resolution of thousands of claims and disputes, to the mediation environment. As a mediator, his unique perspective allows him to assess and evaluate the interests of the disputing parties to facilitate negotiations and settlements. Together with his experience as an accomplished litigator and appellate attorney, David offers creative strategies to help remedy disputes between parties seeking cost and time-efficient resolutions.
MEDIATION FOLLOW UP
Some cases require more time to develop and are not capable of being settled during the initial mediation sessions. When a mediation session does not end in a settlement, follow up is critical. While many cases settle at an initial session, others resolve later -- after follow up calls, emails or sometimes, another session. When the situation arises, David always continues to work with the parties to extend the negotiation process to the point where it is ready to settle. Because David cares about the integrity of his dispute resolutions and his the parties' satisfaction, he does not bill for any necessary follow up phone calls or emails.
