Scott Markus ’80

San Diego County’s First Full-Time Mediator

Scott Markus was a business litigator for 1o years before making a transition to mediation. With that switch in 1992, Markus became San Diego County’s first full-time mediator.

“Litigation is prolonged, expensive and emotional,” said Markus. “I thought the way we resolved dispute was inefficient and hard on the clients, as well as lawyers.”

Markus facilitates settlements of complex litigation throughout Southern California. Since 1992, Mr. Markus has successfully mediated more than three thousand disputes involving personal injury, insurance, employment, real property, business, construction and many other subjects.

He has worked with countless Fortune 500 companies, insurance companies and government agencies at the city, county, state and federal level and with the top consumer attorneys throughout the region. Through his guidance, parties have reached settlements ranging from $1000 to $20 million.
