Mediation Scheduler

“Josh is the mediator of the future. He represents what this field is fast becoming and will soon be. He is bright, energetic, cares more than most that I have ever seen, and is relentless in his pursuit of a mutually satisfactory resolution for those who hire him. I have trained him and watched him do his thing, and believe that it’s just a matter of time before lawyers are flying him all over the western states to resolve their clients challenges. For now, Salt Lake City and the surrounding communities will need to get him while they can!”

Lee Jay Berman, Los Angeles, California – February 22, 2012

Jeffrey Krivis, First Mediation, Los Angeles, California:
“In my twenty four years as a lawyer, I have seldom come across a person as outstanding as Josh. In essence, he has the rare ability to work comfortably at the intersection of idea and result. I am convinced that he will be a major influence on legal scholars and practitioners alike, particularly in the area of conflict resolution.”
Jeffrey Krivis, Mediator/Attorney, Los Angeles

Roberta H. Kyman, Commissioner, Superior Court of Los Angeles: “Without his (Joshua King’s) expertise and ability to broker negotiated settlements, our calendars would have been overwhelming. Many times, I saw him take highly emotional, and sometimes verbally combative, litigants into mediation and reach resolutions that I would not have thought possible. His patience level and knowledge of legal issues were highly impressive.”
Roberta H. Kyman, Commissioner, Superior Court of Los Angeles

Jim Melamed, CEO Mediate.com:
“Josh King has a natural ability to connect with and help people. He has a most pleasant manner, great judgment and determination that makes him a fantastic representative of the mediation profession.”
