I am passionate about helping people resolve their differences in the conference room—or sometimes, the living room—rather than the courtroom. After practicing business law for over 35 years, I have devoted my career to helping others settle their disputes, more efficiently, less expensively, and in a more satisfying way.

I bring an experienced, unique approach to dispute resolution through mediation. Parties whose disputes I have successfully mediated have appreciated my ability to listen with understanding and my passion for facilitating resolutions. I have helped many parties reach amicable resolutions, even when they did not believe a settlement was possible prior to mediation.

Mediation of corporate, commercial financial and insurance disputes, including disputes related to buy-sell agreements, acquisitions, joint ventures, closely-held and family partnerships, corporations, LLC’s, “business divorces”, real estate, securities, probate and estate disputes, elder issues, and insurance coverage disputes (including mass disaster disputes).

  • Over 100 mediations and 300 hours of specialized training in mediation, dispute resolution, and family/business dynamics at various institutions, including CEDR (London), ACR, Harvard University, ICC (Paris), AAA and CPR and the Family Firm Institute
