Edna L. Deeb, Attorney At Law
E.L.D. MEDIATION SERVICES
Attorney at Law/Arbitrator/Certified Mediator
E. L. D. MEDIATION SERVICES is dedicated to the process of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). The company pays careful attention to the concerns of the Parties involved, which allows the Parties to retain control over the outcome of their own dispute with respect to mediation, and depending on the matter, gives the parties a less expensive and time consuming alternative with respect to arbitration. Also, should a mediation need to become arbitration ("a Med/Arb"), Edna L. Deeb has proven her ability to be a fair and impartial neutral, while being a diligent evaluator of facts.
Privacy and confidentiality are the primary concerns to most Parties, as well as expediency and convenience of time and access to ADR. E.L.D. Mediations Services can be accommodating to these concerns.
EDNA L. DEEB has been an attorney in private practice in Southern California since 1984.

She has also been a senior level arbitrator with the State of California Contractors State License Board (late 1990's).
In 1994, she started E.L.D. Mediations Services to better cater to the community.
