Sonora, CA 95370 Tuolumne County Superior Court

Sonora, CA 95370
Originally uploaded by JimHildreth
My days as a court appointed mediator have been busy in resolving disputes.

The court has taken a pro-active position that many disputes can be resolved through Alternative Dispute Resolution, and specifically through mediation.

During the past week of late October 2010 I was assigned 3 mediation's, 2 construction defects and a vandalism where a road construction grader was cut up into 7 pieces, the dispute involved long term friends for over 60 years.

Each of these disputes had the root of non-communication, anger, resentment.

Each was resolved in mediation, vs a trial in the Superior Court.

Jim W Hildreth is both a private and court appointed mediator, who's focus is disputes involving real estate.

Jim W Hildreth of Real Estate Mediation Services completed continuing education on Real Estate Hot Topics in Oakland, CA. The class was centered around a Court of Appeal Real Estate case Holmes v Summer whether California Real Estate Brokers representing a seller of residential real estate are under an obligation to the buyer of that property to disclose that it is over ecumbered and cannot in fact be sold to them at the agreed upon purchase price unless the either the lenders agree to a short sale or the seller deposits a whopping $392,000 in cash into escrow to cover the shortfall. This case should be a concern to brokers, salesmen and the general public especially in this period of rampant foreclosures and short sales.

Hildreth's practice has a focus with real estate disputes.
