MEDIATION | DISPUTE RESOLUTION | ADR SERVICES

Mr. Lucas is frequently retained to serve as a Mediator for voluntary, non-binding, dispute resolution – often required pursuant to purchase and lease agreements prior to filing suit. Mr. Lucas’ extensive legal background and active work in real estate sales and leasing provides a unique ability to work with parties in all forms of discord – from return of initial down payment money or security deposits to specific performance claims on multi-million dollar estates to non-disclosure and fraud claims – and the myriad of other unfortunate events that frequently lend to costly litigation.

Mr. Lucas is on the panel of mediators via the California Association of REALTORS® Real Estate Mediation Center for Consumers.
