Peter J. Marx has been a mediator for more than 25 years and has successfully handled hundreds of cases. After 20 years as a litigator and transactional attorney, Mr. Marx was an early adopter of mediation as a more civilized and far less expensive and burdensome means of resolving disputes. His mediation practice, focused primarily on business, labor and employment and entertainment disputes, has also encompassed diverse areas from real estate to personal injury and family matters.

Mr. Marx became a neutral after being encouraged to do so by a client he represented in a contentious employment dispute. He received training from and was certified by Dispute Resolution Services in 1988 and has served as an independent mediator and member of numerous panels, including that of the Los Angeles County Superior Court. He has been an arbitrator since 1996 and has also served as an independent investigator in alleged employee misconduct (Cotran) investigations.
