Dispute Resolution/Referee Experience

Jil is fully committed to resolving cases, regardless of their size and complexity.  This commitment is based on the philosophy that a litigant generally will achieve a more favorable and economical outcome of a dispute through settlement, as opposed to costly and seemingly endless litigation.  Jil has over 20 years of experience in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes, including mediation, arbitration, special master, discovery referee, and evaluative neutral work.

Since approximately 1994, Jil has acted as a private arbitrator/mediator in employment and business, real estate, intellectual property, and general civil litigation matters.

Jil also acts as referee in discovery and other disputes, and serves as a public arbitrator/mediator for the Santa Clara County Superior Court’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Panel.

She serves as an arbitrator for the Santa Clara County Bar Association’s Fee Arbitration program.  She also volunteers as a settlement judge pro tempore for the Santa Clara County Superior Court’s Mandatory Settlement Conference Program, and as a judge pro tempore for the Santa Clara County Small Claims Court.
