Signature Resolution, a leader in alternative dispute resolution, announced this week that four ‘neutrals’ have joined the firm’s rapidly expanding San Diego office.  

Retired judge Ronald Prager together with veteran lawyers Anthony F. Pantoni, Doug Glass and Jonathan D. Andrews have joined Scott Slater Markus and retired judge Margo Lewis in serving the Southern California area. 

A neutral acts as third-party arbitrator and mediator in alternative dispute resolution cases. 

All four of Signature Resolution’s newest San Diego-based neutrals bring impressive credentials and decades of experience to the table, said Dario Higuchi, managing partner at Signature Resolution. 

“I’m extremely excited about the addition of these four neutrals," Higuchi said. "We are cementing ourselves in the San Diego area and bringing a higher level of dispute resolution than the area has ever seen.”    

Established in Los Angeles in 2017, Signature Resolution's distinguished neutrals come from diverse backgrounds, and include former judges and trial attorneys specializing in virtually every civil practice area.  

Signature Resolution’s panelists are available to offer their expertise and commitment to resolve even the most challenging legal matters. The firm’s founding partner said they started the organization to provide “the highest level of alternative dispute resolution for attorneys and their clients.”
