Steven G. Pearl Joins ADR Services, Inc., as Mediator

Steven G. Pearl has joined the award-winning panel of neutrals at ADR Services, Inc. He is available immediately to resolve matters throughout California.

Mr. Pearl began his litigation career practicing as a defense attorney at Orrick Herrington before founding his own firm in 1994. As Principal of The Pearl Law Firm, Mr. Pearl has litigated hundreds of individual and class action wage & hour, employment, unfair competition, and consumer protection suits on behalf of plaintiffs. His prolific writings on negotiation, employment, wage & hour, and class action law, along with his successful litigation practice, earned him a place on the 2011 “Super Lawyers” list.

Mr. Pearl began mediating in 2007. He received his mediator training at the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine Law School. He quickly earned a reputation as a tenacious, creative settlement professional, and his scholarly legal knowledge and compassion and respect for both parties at mediation have allowed him to broker settlements in over 100 disputed matters.

“Steve Pearl has the drive, knowledge, and skill set our firm seeks when recruiting new panelists,” explained Lucie Barron, President and founder of ADR Services, Inc. “He is a great addition to our group of employment mediators, and we strongly believe that putting our firm behind his excellent reputation and substantial litigation and mediation experience will further build his ADR practice.”

"I am honored to be selected to join ADR Services," Mr. Pearl said. "I have always appreciated the professionalism and competency of ADR's leadership, staff, and neutrals. I look forward to working with them and continuing to provide my clients with the highest level of mediation services."
