• NCRC is deeply saddened to confirm that we have lost a very special friend and colleague. Paul Palmer was involved in a fatal car collision on October 28, 2019. Paul had a special warmth and charisma, which made him one of San Diego’s most beloved leaders. Not only did he give selflessly to our city and region, but he was a man who cared deeply for his family and always put them first. Paul was a wonderful man and will be dearly missed.

    His funeral service is scheduled for Monday, November 18 at 5 PM. It will be held at Our Mother of Confidence Church (3131 Governor Dr. San Diego, CA 92122) and is open to the public. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made to either Big Brothers, Big Sisters of San Diego or the National Conflict Resolution Center.

Mediation Services

Mediation is a conflict resolution process in which a neutral mediator assists the parties through constructive discussion and negotiation of their issues in order to reach a mutually acceptable resolution. NCRC has two branches of professional mediation services: Divorce Mediation Group, for family law issues and West Coast Resolution Group, for litigated cases. NCRC also offers pro-bono mediation services for select community cases, which are described more under “Community Services”.

Divorce Mediation Group provides those in divorce a civil, sensible, affordable alternative to litigating in court for resolving all family law issues before, during, and after the divorce or legal separation.
