AMC provides a single, comprehensive source for mediation, arbitration, and other conflict resolution services.


The Arbitration and Mediation Center has been in operation since 1993. Co-founded by the present Director, Robert A. Murray, AMC was one of the first providers of alternative dispute resolution services in Sonoma County serving the North Bay Area. AMC was formed to meet the alternative dispute resolution needs of individuals, businesses and governmental agencies of Sonoma, Marin, Napa, Lake, Mendicino, Solano and Humboldt Counties.

Individuals and businesses frustrated over the high cost and time consuming nature of traditional litigation are increasingly turning to arbitration and mediation to resolve civil disputes. The Courts recognize that arbitration and mediation are often more appropriate forums for dispute resolution that the courtroom. We offer experienced, practicing attorneys as professional neutrals with a wide range of expertise in various legal matters. AMC panelists have successfully mediated cases involving a variety of subject matter, from personal injury, product liability, insurance, employment, and legal, medical malpractice actions to contract matters, construction, real estate, land use, business disputes, partnership dissolutions and probate.
