GAIL A. GLICK, ESQ.

  • Available in All of California, Los Angeles
  • Available for Mediation and Arbitration assignments

Introduction

Gail spent 26 years representing plaintiffs and defendants in litigation of employment law, personal injury, breach of contract, and professional malpractice cases. Gail has now dedicated her career to mediation on a full-time basis. During her litigation career, she also served as a private mediator, as well as on the Los Angeles Superior Court’s ADR panel and CRASH employment case settlement program. She has earned a reputation for having a respectful and straightforward demeanor with an evaluative and facilitative approach.

Gail says, “In litigation, I believed that my clients were best served by resolving their disputes early - prior to the emotional and economic devastation of participating in a trial or arbitration on the merits. Now, as a full-time mediator, I can help the litigants take control of their lives by making peace for themselves, their businesses, and their families through a mediated resolution.”

One attorney commented, “Gail is an excellent communicator. She has a direct and respectful approach which was particularly appreciated while discussing the weak points of my client’s case. Prior to the mediation, she suggested we exchange a settlement form with all of the non-monetary terms, which saved time and helped us focus on the financial terms during the session.”
