Guy Mizrahi began his career in the late 1990s as a law clerk for an entertainment law firm. During law school, he served as a judicial extern for the Honorable Kim M. Wardlaw of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Upon graduation, Guy worked for a mid-size litigation firm specializing in product liability, professional negligence and personal injury. He later moved on to another firm focusing on a wide array of cases including consumer litigation, product liability, class actions, general negligence, premises liability, insurance matters, toxic tort, personal injury, real estate and business dispute matters.

Guy’s natural ability to understand both sides of every story has led him to being the voice of reason throughout his career. He has a multifaceted approach to mediation that varies based on the nature of the dispute and the needs of the parties. A business dispute among sophisticated parties may not require the same style of engagement as a conflict involving an individual and a large company.

Since 2002, Guy has been involved in hundreds of mediations as both an advocate and a neutral and has acquired the necessary skills to achieve settlements.
