Colorado Mediators & Arbitrators™ was founded in 2005 by Judy West and her dedicated friend Jim Eichberg and adviser Andy Friedman. The company was formed to offer high value, high quality Mediation and Arbitration services. We enjoy resolving issues in divorce and family matters, small business disputes, and real estate, including earnest money disputes.
James B. Eichberg was Judy’s Arbitration Professor at University of Denver | DU.
Jim introduced Judy to attorney Andrew Friedman who had been an investigator for the National Association of Securities Dealers | NASD, now The Financial Industries Regulatory Authority | FINRA. Andy wrote the initial arbitration procedural rules and helped to smooth the path in our initial year of business. We owe both of these men a great deal of gratitude for helping to launch our practice.
Judy resolves common disputes that are closest to home: Divorce & Family, Real Estate, and Small Business. She as been a Mediator or Arbitrator in hundreds of cases in the Denver CO Metro area since 2003, initially through Vision Mediation Group. Through extensive professional and personal experience, she has developed a unique and balanced perspective.
Judy West is fair. She is a careful listener due to her ability to sustain focus and remain curious throughout the tenure of the case. She has a demonstrated track record of commitment over the years to serve & understand pro se parties as they present their testimony and evidence. Judy’s extensive business background and real estate dealings have given her a unique perspective that translates to decisions that are fair to all parties.
Judy West is the primary provider of services at Colorado Mediators & Arbitrators™. She accepts Mediation and Arbitration cases that she determines are a good match with her qualifications. Judy has the practical knowledge that only comes from experience and time in a profession. When cases are filed outside her qualifications or interest, she may assign the case to a subject matter expert or decline a case if she determines, for whatever reason, that it is not a good fit.
