The CALM mission is to educate, train and serve  the general population and underserved communities in matters of alternative dispute resolution, especially mediation, as a means to self determination and peace building.

We're a new kind of quasi-legal firm consisting of seasoned professionals , volunteers, and interns dedicated to reaching and serving people at street level--at the earliest possible stage off a dispute or claim.  As mediation professionals, we promote and enhance your ability to control your own outcome using creative problem-solving and interest based bargaining. Our founder, president, and chief mediator LA Hughes, MA, JD has been practicing for over 25 years and a member of Southern California Mediation Association for as many years. As part of a nationwide network, she  is able to access top mediators in the field to handle more complex matters at negotiated fee reductions.  Talk to a CALM representative first.  If our service doesn't fit your needs, we're happy to provide pre-screened referrals.
