Mission Statement

 Linda Atkins Hughes, MA, JD

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.
