Through the years he has also served as a settlement judge pro tem and neutral mediator for the courts in Santa Clara County, resolving the vast majority of cases brought before him. Sal’s extensive experience in settling thousands of cases over his career also gives him unique knowledge on what a mediator must do and not do to resolve a case.
His jury trial experience, involving over 200+ trials, uniquely qualifies him to assist parties in accurately evaluating their cases for settlement.
