Daniel Riviera is an award-winning lawyer-mediator of wide experience and exceptional talent and skill. He has guided more than one thousand conflicts, involving complex factual, legal, and emotional elements, to resolution.
Mr. Riviera’s decades of negotiating agreements – of listening; of identifying and articulating the interests of his clients; of assessing strengths and weaknesses; of clear and frank discussion, often derived from the experience of having represented both sides of an issue; of finding common ground; of structuring, fully developing, and precisely drafting agreements for lasting outcomes; of focus and efficiency; and of a fundamental orientation toward making not breaking deals – provide an ideal background to his work as a mediator.
Mr. Riviera is a graduate of Harvard College and Georgetown University Law Center. In 2017, he received a Pro Bono Award from the Sonoma County Bar Association for his work in mediation.
