An inside look at the Superior Court System

In 2012, after serving sixteen years on the Superior Court, Judge Brian R. Van Camp (Ret.) commenced serving as a mediator, arbitrator, and judicial referee, specializing in broad business, employment, commercial and real property areas of the law. Lawyers describe Judge Van Camp as well prepared, professional, an empathetic listener and a creative and innovative problem-solver. Attorneys surveyed voted him one of the top Mediators and/or top Arbitrators for Sacramento Magazine’s 2015, 2016, and 2017 annual “Best of…” lists.

Since becoming a full-time neutral, Judge Van Camp has successfully mediated, arbitrated and/or presided over cases with a focus on business disputes, break-ups and sales, employment wrongful termination, real estate sales and leases, partners’ and shareholders’ actions, professional malpractice, construction defects, software design or licensing, elder-abuse, insurance coverage, and intra-governmental disputes and class actions.

Judge Van Camp brings over four decades of judicial and practical legal experience, with an ability to listen carefully to lawyers and their clients, facilitate communication, and where he can, add value based on his bench and practice experience.
