Mediator's Profile


Jeffrey Kravitz

Business Name: Alternative Resource Centers

Jeffrey Kravitz is an experienced entertainment mediator and arbitrator with over 20 years of entertainment litigation experience. Jeffrey was brought up in a working-class family where his father drove a truck and later owned a dry-cleaning store. At the age of 19, he left UCLA early to run his father’s business while he was ill. Once he got well, he worked his way through school, both undergraduate and law school.

Since then, he’s worked as an entertainment litigator for more than 20 years, bringing extensive negotiation skills and experience as a mediator and arbitrator in the State of California, with a focus on resolving entertainment, intellectual property, and insurance matters. His practical, approachable style combined with his hard-nosed empathy and patience make me the ideal neutral to help make peace for warring parties. He believes that yesterday’s foe can be tomorrow’s partner, if conflicts are managed and resolved.
