Arbitration & Mediation
Robert M. Wilson has acted as a Sacramento County Superior Court settlement conference judge pro tem from 1989 to the present. He has also participated as an Early Neutral Evaluator for the United States District Court, Eastern District of California.
Bob offers mediation and arbitration services dedicated to the resolution of disputes. Bob firmly believes that although some cases must be tried in a court of law, most can be settled through careful, thoughtful mediation or arbitration. It is his desire to spare people the stress and anguish often associated with being a party to a formal dispute.
Bob also believes that the settlement of disputes can be achieved only when all parties come to the table with a singular purpose – to work together with the mediator and opposing counsel to achieve an equitable arrangement for all parties. While some cases are not ready for mediated settlement until suit has been filed and discovery completed, other cases can successfully be completed prior to the commencement of litigation proceedings.
Bob is an experienced trial lawyer who has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in civil litigation in state and federal courts throughout California. As a trial lawyer still actively engaged in the day-to-day practice of law, he possesses a unique sensitivity to the demands placed upon counsel for both parties, as well as the obligations of the insurance adjuster. His ability to clearly view and articulate both sides of a dispute has long characterized his success as a mediator and arbitrator.
