Los Angeles County Dispute Resolution Program


In 1986, the California Dispute Resolution Programs Act (DRPA) was signed into law. This law allows counties to fund alternative dispute resolution services from a portion of the filing fees collected for first papers in civil court actions. Currently, nine agencies are contracted with DRPA funds to train and supervise mediators in Los Angeles County. These mediators help people resolve their differences without the added cost of time and money required for full, formal court proceedings.


Any individual, business, or organization residing, working, or operating in Los Angeles County is eligible to receive DRPA-funded Mediation services at little or no cost.


To request assistance with Mediation services, you may call a Contract Provider agency directly.
