Description of Practice

This Mediator is Certified
Mediation is a process and the sooner you get to the process, the sooner the case settles. Here's the rub: a trained mediator knows what process to use. They don't teach it in law school.

Professional Background

Education: Brigham Young University 1972; Western State College of Law,1978. I've tried a lot of cases: jury trials and bench trials. I have an AV rating and bar registry of preeminent lawyers...which doesn't mean a thing if you don't have the natural ability to make the peace and mediate cases.

Experience

Straus Institute Graduate (Mediating the Litigated Case). Member: Superior Court Arbitrator Panel, 1988 - present. Judge Pro Tem, referee and mediator for the Superior Court, 1992 – present – over 200 cases. Private ADR: Mr. Ashworth has mediated over 3,500 cases, and 3,200 of them to settlement; Orange County Bar Association; State Bar of California (Litigation Section, Labor Section, Family Section, ADR Section); Los Angeles County Bar Association, ADR Section. American Bar Association. Who’s Who in California, 1986.

Approach

I am rarely directive unless the attorneys, parties and the nature of the dispute beg for guidance. Primarily, I want the attorneys who hire me to be heard and collaborate in the settlement process that I help facilitate.

Fees

$300 per hour; no set up fee.

Other Information

About 5,000 cases mediated to resolution since 1986.
