About me

I volunteer as a temporary judge in the courts hearing family law cases, serve as a mediator and arbitrator for the courts in family law cases on their alternate dispute resolution panel, assist victims in their domestic violence restraining order cases, and volunteer as a mediator with the Palo Alto Mediation Program. I have done speaking engagements to the local bar association and to other groups on Mediation. I am scheduled to teach an adult education class this summer, on mediation. I have also served as a commissioner on the Palo Alto Human Relations Commission and written and had published numerous articles on human relations issues.
