Civil Litigation & Arbitration Attorneys

L+G’s arbitration lawyers and mediation lawyers have extensive experience both as arbitration judges and as general counsel for parties entering arbitration or mediation. We serve the California Central Coast region with offices located in Monterey, Salinas, Hollister, King City, Paso Robles.

Our arbitration attorneys seek resolution of disputes outside the courts. In arbitration, the dispute is presented to an unbiased third party to resolve. Arbitration provides a way to end disputes in a way that can be faster, less formal and more collegial than courtroom litigation. Also, arbitration can keep the conflict confidential as there is no public hearing or public record. Our arbitration lawyers will be with you every step of the way.

Managing Partner Jeff Gilles is a sought-after arbitration judge with a respected reputation for reaching effective resolutions.

In addition to arbitration, our mediation attorneys are available to assist with the mediation process. Mediation is a nonbinding decision agreed upon by all sides and can help to solve an issue without the cost or time of litigation or arbitration.

In the event that the issues extend beyond arbitration or mediation, our civil litigation attorneys have a proven track record of success in negotiating and trying cases in court for our clients across multiple industries and areas of litigation.
