About

Volunteer mediators facilitate constructive discussion to resolve disputes between individuals and/or businesses, such as:

  • Landlords and tenants
  • Businesses and customers
  • Neighbors
  • Family members or roommates
  • Contractors and homeowners
  • Homeowner associations

Additionally, the Department of Consumer and Business Affairs is a provider for court-connected mediation. DCBA conducts on-the-spot mediation in Los Angeles County Superior Court, with cases ranging from Limited Civil jurisdiction litigation, to Unlawful Detainer and Small Claims cases. These mediations help to alleviate the heavy burden of overcrowded calendars in many courtrooms.

We have an extreme need for bilingual volunteers particularly for Korean, Chinese and Spanish speakers.

Certification in Alternative Dispute Resolution/Mediation is required.
