Arbitrator or Mediator

Mr. Zalma understands that litigation is expensive and does not always resolve a dispute. He is also available, therefore, to serve as an arbitrator or mediator for any insurance dispute. Because Mr. Zalma limits his services to insurance disputes and does not operate through a mediation or arbitration service the cost of his services are much less than the cost of an arbitrator or mediator from such a service.

Most people cannot define, let alone understand, insurance. Mr. Zalma, a native Californian, accepts the California definition of “insurance” which was codified as follows:

“Insurance is a contract whereby one undertakes to indemnify another against loss, damage, or liability arising from a contingent or unknown event.” [California Insurance Code Section 22]
