About Dale Ordas
Dale has been a sustaining member of SCMA for many years. He is committed to the expansion of SCMA's presence in San Diego, e.g., as a presenter of "The Art of Negotiation" and as a participant/supporter of the SCMA San Diego Study Group. He has limited his practice to serving as a neutral (mediator/arbitrator) exclusively for fifteen years. Over the entirety of his legal career, he has been a member of numerous professional organizations and have served as an officer and committee member dealing with educational programs and policy issues. His journey in dispute resolution started in 1985 with the development of the civil arbitration program for the Sacramento Superior Court, which evolved to include mediation as a part of the ADR program. He has written and lectured on negotiation techniques and served as a neutral in over eight hundred litigated cases. His dispute resolution skills-set was forged in the crucible of thirty five years as a litigator and burnished by over two hundred hours of training.
