Judge Simson Mediation

Judge Simpson and his staff of legal professionals are the primary mechanisms to help you achieve fair outcomes of your mediation.  However, Judge Simpson believes equally important is an environment that is both comfortable, and features characteristics that are conducive to all parties seeking a fair outcome. 

This environment starts with his location in North Fresno’s Fig Garden area that is easy to find on Shaw Avenue, a few blocks west of Van Ness Extension.  In addition to being easy to find, Judge Simpson’s Mediation center features plenty of parking in both the front and back of the facility.  

Your clients will not feel claustrophobic, nor will they feel their privacy is compromised.  Judge Simpson’s Mediation center is a dedicated mediation facility that features two large conference rooms, and two breakout rooms in addition to the office space for both the judge and his two assistants.  Furthermore, there is enough space between the client spaces to assure your clients of privacy when needed during the negotiation sessions.
