We value the excellent working relationships we have with the attorneys for whom we provide mediation and arbitration services.
I worked together with Steve on a difficult parentage case and was impressed by his knowledge, experience, and client skills. Steve was clearly familiar with every issue in the case, as well as opposing counsel and the judge. Although he was busy, he communicated with his client on a daily basis. I have great confidence in Steve and refer clients to him on a regular basis.
Steve is not only a great friend, but one of the finest attorneys I know. I am always happy to refer family law matters to him. I know his clients will get the knowledge and expertise they need for these difficult situations.
“Mr. Hemmat kindly agreed to serve as settlement master in a somewhat tricky contested dissolution I was involved with. He was thoughtful, persistent and ultimately very helpful in bringing the matter to a successful conclusion. I give him a hearty endorsement.”
An effective mediator must be able to facilitate open, honest, and productive communication between represented parties, encouraging attorneys and their clients to negotiate a workable solution. The mediation services team at the Hemmat Law Group understands how to work with the disputing parties and their attorneys to articulate their goals, engage in productive negotiations, and work toward a satisfying resolution. As your mediation services team, we will take the time to consider your client’s viewpoints, concerns, and needs. We pride ourselves on our fairness, objectivity, and thoroughness at every step of the mediation process, ensuring that we guide the parties to a workable solution as smoothly, productively, and efficiently as possible.

Steven Hemmat is a highly experienced Family Law practitioner, former U.S. Department of Justice Trial Attorney, and founder of the Hemmat Law Group. He has been practicing civil and family law for 36 years – working as an advocate on both sides of thousands of cases across Washington State.
Over the course of his career, Steven has gained an appreciation for how alternative dispute resolution (ADR) can bring about better results for parties in a variety of conflicts. As a provider, Steven can arrange for mediations or arbitrations in person, remotely, or by travelling to the parties themselves.
Steven prefers to conduct mediation via shuttle diplomacy, where the parties are placed in separate rooms and never see or speak to each other directly. The Mediator then travels between the parties and attempts to settle the dispute through alternating discussions.
When conducting arbitrations, Steven is happy to consider disputes with or without oral argument.

Yaniv is a valued part of the Hemmat Team’s Mediation and Arbitration practice. He is the firm’s international discovery and mediation analyst assisting clients and counsel by performing psychological review as part of the mediation services process and support in hotly contested cases where mental illness and abuse is a primary concern.
If it is required, Yaniv meets with parties before the date of mediation and triages potential issues for full review by the mediation team. This helps reduce wasteful downtime, when the mediator would normally have to spend precious time familiarizing themselves with the circumstances before negotiations could begin.
