Jeanne Behling, Esq. is a seasoned mediator, having successfully resolved hundreds of disputes since commencing her full-time mediation practice in 2016. She holds an impressive background as an attorney representing plaintiffs and defendants alike for over two decades, specializing in personal injury, product liability, sexual abuse/harassment, and employment litigation. Her experience also extends to subrogation and cases involving peace officers and government claims.
Ms. Behling began her career in 1988 as Deputy District Attorney for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, where she was assigned her first felony trial within just eight months of joining. She was responsible for handling all aspects of prosecution of criminal cases, including misdemeanors and felonies. At the end of her tenure, she had tried over sixty cases to jury verdict, including vertical prosecution of sexual abuse and assault cases, gang offenses, and homicides.
Ms. Behling then shifted her practice to handle civil litigation as an Associate at the Orange County firm of Alevizon, Smith, Susson & Palafox, a personal injury litigation firm which practiced both plaintiff and defense civil cases. Here, she was responsible for all aspects of civil litigation, including discovery, depositions, motions, and court appearances. After three years, she relocated with her husband to Singapore, where she spent almost five years teaching business law and political science at The Overseas Family College, a school affiliated with the California State University System.
