Practice/Organization Description

Steve Mehta has been frequently asked to mediate cases that involve a variety of complex and emotional issues, including elder abuse, medical malpractice, real estate, personal injury, employment, probate, and business matters. Since 1999, he has mediated several thousand cases.

Mr. Mehta has taught countless attorneys how to better negotiate and achieve better results in mediation. His seminars are widely attended and are often praised as being one of the “best seminars” ever attended. He is repeatedly asked to lecture Statewide and nationally on a variety of topics.

As an attorney, Steve has practiced on both the plaintiff and defense side and has represented insurance companies, healthcare providers, and consumers, and businesses in a variety of areas including elder abuse, medical malpractice, major personal injury, employment law and insurance.
