Courtroom trials are often dramatized in movies and television. We see talented persuasive lawyers depicted in dramatic closing argument scenes with intense “gotcha” moments during searing cross-examination. But truly great trial lawyers have a skill usually unseen in the courtroom…the ability to predict the outcome of a trial before it starts.
Clients come to lawyers asking basic questions about complicated issues: What is the risk? What are my chances? Do I have a case? The uncertainty of a trial outcome can exposure clients to unforeseen risks and financial liability. Are you currently in a dispute that may seem unresolvable? Do you wish you could find arbitration in Newport Beach?

With arbitration participation is typically voluntary, and there is a third party who, as a private judge, imposes a resolution by rendering a decision, called an award. If there is a stipulation in a contract requiring parties to settle disputes through arbitration, there can be severe financial consequences to filing a lawsuit prior to seeking arbitration.
Judge Thomas F. Nuss is a retired Superior Court Judge. Prior to his appointment to the bench in 1975, Judge Nuss worked as a trial attorney for over fifteen years representing both plaintiff and defense in complex litigated matters. As a bench officer for over twenty years, Judge Nuss presided over hundreds of trials and settlement conferences. Since his retirement from the Los Angeles Superior Court in January 1995, he has worked full time as a mediator and arbitrator.
Through years of trial experience and as Supervising Judge of the Los Angeles County East District Courthouse, Judge Nuss gained the experience necessary to handle the most complex cases. This experience was demonstrated when Nuss was appointed as Special Master who ordered the Los Angeles Archdiocese to disclose certain confidential materials pursuant to a District Attorney subpoena, a decision upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. His efforts as a mediator contributed to the settlement of the Orange County Diocese Abuse cases for $100 Million. Judge Nuss’ ADR expertise includes but not limited to: School district and governmental agency matters, medical malpractice, elder and child abuse, employment, business litigation, general commercial, medical/legal malpractice, real estate, probate and conservatorship.
