Beeman Mediation

San Francisco Oakland San Jose Sacramento via Zoom

Since becoming a full-time mediator and arbitrator in 2018, Judge Paul L. Beeman (Ret.) has successfully settled hundreds of cases. Judge Beeman’s practice focuses on personal injury, business, employment, construction defect, real estate and insurance matters. As a student of dispute resolution techniques and strategies, Judge Beeman approaches his cases with a sense of pragmatism and a focus on creating solutions, even in the midst of great turmoil. Judge Beeman’s preparation methodology is to be thorough and start the evaluation process early, as to identify avoidable problems and place the parties on the path to resolution. This process is key in guiding the parties to settlement.

With nearly 18 years of judicial service, Judge Beeman has presided over a wide variety of civil matters and brings that wealth of experience to his dispute resolution services. Judge Beeman served as Presiding Judge and Supervising Civil Judge of the Solano County Superior Court, and was the Chairman of the Court’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee for 12 years. Prior to his years on the bench, Judge Beeman spent over 26 years as a trial lawyer in private practice, where he tried more than 30 civil and criminal jury trials, and arbitrated and mediated more than 150 cases.
