At the law firm of Gizzi Reep Foley in Benicia, California, we assist clients in resolving their financial, business, and elder-law issues throughout the Bay Area and across California. While we pride ourselves on being effective litigators, we also believe strongly in the process of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). Specific areas of practice include:
In early 2008, Gizzi Reep Foley was selected to complete an evaluation of the Solano County Superior Court’s existing mediation, arbitration and other ADR programs, and to make constructive recommendations for future enhancements to the program. The final report was heralded by the Court as being very sucessful for providing an accurate assessment of the existing programs, and outlining a detailed roadmap for future improvements. As a direct result of this report, the Court formed an ADR Committee with special subcommittees for mediation, arbitration, small claims mediation and mandatory early settlement conferences. Each committee has established specific goals and objectives for every one of the programs. It is anticipated that this increased focus on ADR in the Courts will result in more pre-trial settlements, which ultimately means a reduced caseload for our overburdened judicial officers.
Based on this work and the firm’s high ethical standards, Gizzi Reep Foley was awarded the Solano County Bar Association Law Firm of the Year for 2008, and was also awarded Law Firm of the Year in Local Happenings Magazine for 2012 and 2013.
