The judges and commissioners listed below are available to facilitate settlement conferences. Please contact them directly for more information.

Please note: If your case requires mediation, a settlement conference or an outside mediation / dispute resolution option can fulfill this requirement.

For family law cases, another alternative is to participate in the court's Volunteer Family Law Settlement Conference Program. Visit that program's webpage for more information.
