About Floyd Siegal
After nearly three decades as a successful trial attorney in both the criminal and civil arenas, Floyd developed a passion for mediation and made the decision to transition from litigator to mediator. Following completion of an intensive course of study offered by the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University School of Law, he began offering his services as a private mediator. Subsequently, he completed additional specialized training at the Straus Institute, focusing on employment disputes, personal injury and professional negligence.
Floyd has proven to be enormously effective, gaining the trust and confidence of those who have utilized his services – as well as the respect and admiration of his peers, who recently elected him to serve as President-Elect of the Southern California Mediation Association (SCMA) for 2015. Equally important, at least on a personal level, serving as a mediator and helping those who are experiencing the emotional upheaval of litigation – or threatened litigation – to resolve their disputes has proven to be his most gratifying professional endeavor to date. Floyd’s ability to genuinely listen and his natural instinct for problem-solving enable him to gently guide the parties toward a mutually acceptable resolution.
Today, offering his mediation services exclusively through Judicate West, he employs those same skills to assist others in resolving their disputes, helping them find closure and peace in the process.
