Huerta Mediation

Huerta Mediation provides mediation and arbitration services for the legal,  human resources, and business communities.  The firm's principal mediator, Lawrence A. Huerta, graduated from the University of California, Davis with a B.A. in Economics in 1980, and from the University of Michigan Law School in 1983.  He was admitted to the California Bar in 1983, and has since been admitted to all federal courts in California.   Mr. Huerta worked as a business and commercial litigator at major law firms in Southern California before forming his own business and civil litigation firm in San Diego.  The firm subsequently evolved to a full time mediation and arbitration practice.  

For the past twenty years, Huerta Mediation has been empowering lawyers and their clients to achieve interest based, efficient resolutions of their employment, commercial, financial services, healthcare, insurance, intellectual property,  and tort cases.  This is achieved through a mediation process which provides parties with an opportunity to be heard and understood, identifies and define risks of litigation, and develops creative, interest based solutions for each case.
