Employment/Workplace - Personal Injury

Member of: LASC Panel (Former)

I have been working as personal injury litigation attorney and partner with the R. Rex Parris Law Firm for the last 20 years. I have had extensive experience in dealing with catastrophic personal injury cases, including commercial truck collisions, wrongful death cases, brain and spinal cord injuries and Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). Before becoming a lawyer, I worked for 16 years with the California Highway Patrol, retiring as a captain. The knowledge and expertise I gained as a CHP officer, coupled with my litigation experience, has given me the experience necessary to successfully mediate any type of personal injury or police misconduct case.

In my 20 years as a personal injury litigator, I have participated in numerous trials and obtained favorable verdicts for my clients. I have attended countless mediations on behalf of my own clients and have an extremely high success rate in obtaining favorable settlements. I have been directly involved in mediations resulting in nearly $500 million in total settlements for my clients. This has given me the opportunity to work directly with some of the most effective mediators in California.

I was on the Los Angeles County Superior Court Alternate Dispute Resolution Voluntary Settlement Conference Panel from February 2009 to June 2013 (when it was discontinued due to budget cuts), and mediated more than ten cases for them. In 2012, I was appointed to the Los Angeles County Superior Court Civil Arbitration Panel, Civil Mediation Panel and Civil Neutral Evaluation Panel. Additionally, I was appointed to the Mediation Panel for the United States District Court for the Central District of California on July 1, 2012. I am listed on The Mediator Registry as a Designated Mediator.

My ADR work style is facilitative to assist the parties in reaching a mutually-agreeable resolution. In the process, I may ask questions; search for interests underlying the parties’ positions; validate the parties' points of view; assist the parties in finding their own options for resolution; and help them analyze the same. I try not to make recommendations, give opinions or predict the outcome of the case. I give the parties the freedom to determine the outcome. I encourage dissemination of information and understanding in order to facilitate the parties coming to an agreement. My goal is to get the case settled or to provide the foundation to get the case settled.

I require a brief with the following format:
1. The procedural status of the case.
2. A description of the relationship between or among the parties.
3. A brief description of the problem giving rise to the litigation.
4. A brief statement of the client’s position.
5. The status of settlement discussions.
6. A description of the most important differences between or among the parties with respect to the facts or law.
