Steve Rottman


United States of America

Steve Rottman is one of America’s most respected mediators. An honors graduate of Harvard Law School and a summa cum laude graduate of Duke University, he spent 20 years as a trial lawyer before committing himself full-time to mediation. The Los Angeles Daily Journal named him one of the “top 50 neutrals in the state,” and he has been consistently recognized by “Best Lawyers in America” and the “Super Lawyer” publications as a trial lawyer and as a mediator.

Steve lectures and trains mediators across the globe and serves as an Adjunct Professor at The Straus Institute of Dispute Resolution, where he teaches Advanced Mediation. He is a Distinguished Fellow of the International Academy of Mediators, an avid whitewater kayaker, an aspiring Fender bass player, and the proud father of two strong-willed daughters.
