Doug A. Glass has been a full-time mediator since 2001. He combines pragmatism, charisma, and vulnerability to disrupt a typical mediation process and critically analyze cases. Mr. Glass delivers with thorough preparation, straightforward conversation, creative solutions, and by inspiring parties to craft their outcomes to the dispute. 

A successful and humanistic mediator, Mr. Glass captures respect by transforming cases into positive outcomes. During his time as a mediator, he has been selected for over 4,000 cases, which has led to receiving awards such as Best Lawyers in America®, 2017 Lawyer of the Year for Mediation, San Diego, Daily Journal Top 50 Neutrals in California 2013, and Best Lawyers in America® 2008–2022—Mediation, San Diego. 

Prior to being a full-time mediator, Mr. Glass was a civil trial attorney with an emphasis on real estate, personal injury, and construction defect litigation. He primarily represented plaintiffs, but developed an expertise in defending home inspectors and, as a result, did a significant amount of insurance defense work for construction and design professionals. Mr. Glass tried over 100 cases during his career and continues to be AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell. In 1997, Mr. Glass was honored by the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego with an Outstanding Trial Lawyer Award.
