Huerta Mediation recently
assisted a family in resolving a title dispute
over a property family members had jointly
inherited. Through mediation, the family was able to resolve the title dispute, execute a quitclaim deed, and salvage the equity in their home (which would otherwise have been used to litigate). This mediation was done in English and Spanish.

Another recent mediation involved a boundary dispute, adverse possession, prescriptive easement and quiet title claims where the parties agreed to new boundaries, and to execute a statement of non-opposition to the proposed subdivision of one lot into four lots.
