About Southern California Mediation Association

The Southern California Mediation Association, founded in 1989, is devoted to promoting mediation as a tool for resolving conflict. Mediation empowers parties to design their own solutions to disputes that might otherwise prove costly and cumbersome to resolve in court or arbitration. Mediation can also be used to solve problems that might not be suitable for court at all. SCMA provides resources for the public to learn more about mediation, and to find mediators skilled in assisting with all kinds of disputes. To find a suitable mediator, and learn more about whether mediation can help resolve your family’s or your business’s dispute, go to the Select a Mediator page.
