Marlon Schulman

I have spent years, as a plaintiff and defense attorney (as well as an arbitrator and mediator) in the worlds of personal injury and medical malpractice, working and trying cases as varied as defective heart valve litigation, medical and dental malpractice as well as the more commonplace litigation of automobile, “slip and fall “ and small business and workplace conflicts. I have spent years involved with contractor complaints – and have done so in all roles as plaintiff and defense counsel as well as remote and in-person arbitration and mediation. I have mediated hundreds of personal injury and med mal cases in the LA Superior Court.

In the entertainment industry, I have worked as a Business Affairs as well as a Consulting Executive in the Hollywood studio system. Working with the MPAA (now MPA) worldwide has presented me with the challenge of working not just with one studio, but all the major and minor studios. While charged with motion picture and television anti-piracy investigations and resolutions, I investigated attorney malpractice and billing malfeasance. I served for years as General Counsel and head of Human Resources for a small conglomerate of music and sound production companies and served as an executive and development producer for an independent film fund.

I have been the Business Affairs executive for a high-end, worldwide executive search firm specializing in Architecture and Design.

I have experienced the excitement of start-ups, facing the practicalities and learning the lessons of an entrepreneur, and have also dissolved companies, feeling the pain and emotion of seeming loss and the attendant fall-out from such endeavors.

I have experience in Workplace Conflict (facilitation) and as Legal Advisor and facilitator as a Board Member of the International Pickleball Federation (recently re-named), have dealt with disputes and “disconnects/dis-harmony” in the Pickleball community – both internationally and domestically.

I sit on the Board of the Southern California Mediation Association, and Chair a committee therein. I also Co-chair the ABA Dispute Resolution Committee on Client Representation. I train mediators (remotely) for Phoenix Dispute Solutions.
