Mediation Services

James Quadra and Rebecca Coll are skilled negotiators who bring extensive plaintiff and defense experience to their mediation practice.  They are trial lawyers who understand the real life impact of litigation on parties, and have the skills to bring disputes to resolution.


James Quadra has been repeatedly recognized as a preeminent attorney in civil litigation, having been included in The Best Lawyers in America - 19th Edition, named as a Northern California Super Lawyer for nine consecutive years, awarded an AV rating by Martindale-Hubbell, and ranked as “Superb” by Avvo.  Mr. Quadra is fluent in Spanish, creating an ideal environment for bilingual mediations.


Rebecca Coll has extensive experience in complex litigation. She is licensed to practice law in California, New York and the District of Columbia.  She has been recognized by Super Lawyers as a Northern California Rising Star for her litigation skills.


Mr. Quadra and Ms. Coll have used their significant mediation skills as volunteer panelists for the San Francisco Superior Court Pre-Arbitration Settlement Program.  Mr. Quadra has also acted as a mediator for the San Francisco Bar Association Early Settlement Program.


In addition to traditional mediation services, Mr. Quadra and Ms. Coll offer tandem mediation services, wherein both mediators work simultaneously with the parties to resolve disputes.  Tandem mediation can offer substantial benefits to the litigants.  A second mediator can act as an additional set of eyes and ears for the parties, can offer alternative approaches to barriers to settlement, and at times can increase the effectiveness of moving intractable parties from their positions.


Mr. Quadra and Ms. Coll are available to conduct mediations in California and New York.  Quadra & Coll, LLP's mediation rates are $4,000 per day for a single mediator and $7,000 per day for tandem mediation.
