The Author

Douglas Noll, Born in Pasadena, California, now lives outside of Clovis, California. He was admitted to practice law in California in December 1977. As a litigator, he has tried dozens of jury and bench cases across the country before state, federal, and administrative tribunals. He is admitted to practice in numerous federal courts across the country, including the United States Supreme Court. He is listed in the Registry of Preeminent Lawyers.

Noll now limits his practice to mediation, peacemaking, and conflict management. He has mediated hundreds of complex litigated and non-litigated conflicts to resolution. He has been on the panel of arbitrators and mediators with the American Arbitration Association since 1981. He is a judge pro tem for the Fresno County Superior Court, serving as a settlement conference judge and an Early Neutral Evaluator for the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of California. Noll’s community peacemaking includes victim-offender reconciliation and development of Neighborhood Restorative Justice Centers. He is a co-author of the Framework for Restorative Justice, a frequent mediation trainer, and a continuing legal and professional education panelist.

As adjunct professor of law at San Joaquin College of Law, Noll teaches remedies, critical thinking, peacemaking and the law. As adjunct professor of Forensic Psychology at Alliant University/California School of Professional Psychology, he teaches forensic mediation and conflict theory to doctoral students. Noll is a second degree black belt and tai chi instructor, a Level III PSIA certified ski instructor, a whitewater river guide, an accomplished fly fisher, and an instrument-rated airplane and helicopter pilot. In his spare time, he plays Irish and traditional American fiddle.

He is married to Jan, and together with their golden retriever and a large cat, live on their central California Sierra foothill ranch.
