A full time mediator of real estate and business disputes since about September 2004, David I. Karp maintains a private mediation practice in Van Nuys, CA, and has also assisted various courts with their Alternative Dispute Resolution needs in Southern California, including presently the California Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District. In each of these contexts, privately and otherwise, Karp applies his skill, training and experience, emanating from a 25 year law practice primarily in real estate and business litigation, to help the disputants reach mutual understanding, if they can, and their own private, consensual resolution of their conflicts with one another.

For three years, Karp also conducted Special Education mediations as a Pro Tem Administrative Law Judge for the Special Education Division of the California Office of Administrative Hearings.

Karp earned his Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1976. He received his Juris Doctorate from Loyola Law School, Los Angeles, in 1979. He conducted a full time law practice in metropolitan Los Angeles from 1979 through August 2004, at which time he turned his full time attention to mediation.

Since 1987, Karp has been consistently given the highest rating available (now referred to as “AV-Preeminent”) for legal ability, ethics, professional reliability and diligence, through Martindale-Hubbell, Inc., virtually the only nationwide entity that promotes peer ratings of attorneys. By invitation, Karp appeared in Martindale's Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers from 1994-2005, during active law practice.
