Avoid Time, Stress & Expense

My mediation practice service is designed to help you avoid the time, stress, and expense of court proceedings. I use my extensive skills and experience to facilitate negotiations and discussions, helping you reach an agreement that's satisfactory for all parties.

Making Decisions, Finding Solutions

Mediation is a powerful tool for avoiding litigation. I employ a creative and 'outside the box' thinking approach, ensuring every possible avenue is explored in the pursuit of resolution. My role as an arbitrator is to hear the evidence and make a binding decision, while as a mediator, I facilitate communication between the parties to help them come to their own agreement.

Extending Expertise

I also offer services as a discovery referee and special master. These roles allow me to provide further assistance in complex legal disputes, helping to manage discovery processes, overseeing case management, and resolving specific issues referred to by the court.

My Commitment

My commitment to high-quality services includes maintaining transparency and effective communication throughout the process. This ensures you're always informed and confident about the progress of your case.
