Ivan Stevenson has served as an arbitrator for 37 years and as a mediator for 20 years. Additionally, he has been a trial attorney for 43 years, during which time he has had an extensive successful trial record and has been responsible for the establishment of case law on both the Appellate Court and Supreme Court level in the State of California.

Ivan's 43 years as a trial attorney has brought him a wealth of knowledge in a variety of fields including: Maritime and Admiralty matters, Constuction Contract and Defect matters, Professional, Legal and Medical Malpractice matters, Commercial and Business matters, Contract, Leases, Trademark, Patent matters and knowledge in all forms of Personal Injury, Products Liability, Insurance Law and Governmental Agency law.

Mr. Stevenson has practiced both as a Plaintiff Attorney and as Defense Attorney, which gives him unique insight into handling and resolution of cases. Mr. Stevenson has lectured on the subject of mediation and the use of mediation on a state, national and international level.

 Mediation Experience             

Mr. Stevenson has mediated in excess of 2000 cases since 1997 and arbitrated over 500 cases since 1980. Mr. Stevenson has been selected by both plaintiff and defense attorneys on an equal basis. Mr. Stevenson is often chosen to help settle the cases that could not be settled by other mediators.

 Approach To Mediation           

Mr. Stevenson is very careful in his approach to the confidentiality of the mediation process, given his own experience as a trial attorney and the abuse of that confidentiality by a retired judge pretending to be a mediator. He is very aware and respects the attorney client relationship. He adapts to the needs of the attorneys and the parties in the process.
