About Me

Both mediation parties and my business clients tell me that I am a very good listener. They appreciate that I listen carefully to them so that  I understand their goals and priorities before explaining  the pros and cons of various options they may want  to pursue.


 


People find me patient, personable and sincerely interested in helping them reach an economical and thoughtful solution, whether it is for a mediated dispute or for a proposed purchase or sale transaction or for another contract..
