Civil Roster Mediator Details

2008
I can offer mediation facilities including a boardroom, wifi, break-out rooms, computer access and a full kitchen.
I have been a lawyer since 1985. For the first 20 years of my career, I practiced within the traditional litigation oriented system to try to resolve problems for my clients. My practice focused on personal injury litigation, for both plaintiffs and defendants, wills and estates, workplace issues and family law. It became increasingly obvious to me that our adversarial system is usually not the best way to solve problems. As a result, I began exploring ways of resolving disputes out of court. I became fully trained as a Mediator. I am completely convinced that mediation is better in almost every way than litigation: it is quicker, cheaper and most importantly, it is a positive and satisfying experience for most clients. Instead of further breaking down the relationship between parties, mediation often results, not only in a solution, but in a renewed sense of goodwill between the participants. I am committed to using my experience as a litigator, combined with my training and experience as a mediator to efficiently, inexpensively and with the least amount of acrimony, guide clients to a solution.
