Mediation allows for the efficient, cost-effective resolution of conflicts, minimizing the extensive time, resources, and costs associated with litigation.  According to Mr. Higgs, “In almost every case there is a resolution for both sides that is better than the risks involved in a trial.” Mr. Higgs’ extensive experience in civil trial work both as plaintiffs’ and defendants’ counsel has distinguished him as a premier mediator in Southern California.  With this unique background, he works closely with each client to develop a viable solution for all parties involved.

Appreciating that every case and client is unique, Higgs possesses the distinct ability to evaluate each set of circumstances quickly and comprehensively.  By means of mediation, he strives to alleviate the risks associated with litigation, thereby maximizing his clients’ business opportunities and interests.  He has handled over 1,800 mediations, including employment cases, class actions, personal injury and all type of business disputes ranging from those of modest value to tens of millions of dollars.  Working with a wide range of clientele, from national corporations to local businesses, he helps all parties involved arrive at an amenable resolution — even in the most complex situations.
