About me

I have almost 20 years of litigation and mediation experience, having seen both good and bad results.  I bring all of that experience to bear in my mediations and arbitrations, keeping focused on the big picture of a positive outcome without ignoring the details of the necessary steps to end disputes with a positive result.  I am naturally inquisitive, and bring that constant "asking why" attitude to bear in dealing with the various challenges of settling cases.
