background

Dominic attended The University of Southern California where he earned a degree in Psychology. His diverse background in real estate includes lending, sales, rehabilitation of distressed properties as well as multi-unit project management. After clerking for the Orange County District Attorney’s office, he earned a Master’s degree in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution. He is both an active real estate broker and current mediator for the LA County Superior Court. Dominic is detailed and analytical and lends his skills and experience in business and real estate to find effective solutions to help parties resolve their conflicts.

Dominic believes mediation is a fluid process and a good mediator needs to be able to adapt to the parties’ needs and choose the appropriate mediation style given the circumstances. His preferred style begins with a facilitative approach helping parties to better understand differing perspectives and communicate important facts and interests. Next, he incorporates an evaluative model to provide guidance by helping parties see a clear picture of the possibilities so that they may understand the information involved in making their decisions. A collaborative approach can leverage creativity in looking for win-win outcomes if the parties do not favor a directive mediator.
