Jill R. Sperber

Sperber Dispute Resolution, Inc.

Dana Point, CA, USA

Jill Sperber has been involved in the mediation and/or arbitration of more than five hundred disputes, including cases ranging from general business and personal disputes to complex, high-stakes, and multi-party matters.

In addition to helping parties reach satisfying monetary resolutions, including settlements ranging from five to ten figure values, Ms. Sperber has played an integral role in cultivating resolutions involving innovative and effective non-monetary settlement components.

Fusing the skills she honed as a judicial clerk, litigator and a neutral, she candidly identifies and analyzes the key legal issues and the practical business implications of the underlying dispute while her affable nature quickly puts parties and counsel at ease.

Ms. Sperber’s judicial clerkship experiences, complex litigation work, and extensive ADR practice ­­­­­­­have established her as a neutral in the alternative dispute resolution arena.
