Video Introduction

In mediation, parties in conflict engage in good faith dialogue about their dispute, present their points of view, and explore options for settlement in a comfortable, impartial environment. I help people find their own path forward.

About Me

I am a licensed attorney and Credentialed Advanced Mediator who believes passionately that people solve their problems best when empowered to craft their own solutions, rather than entrust their futures to the courtrooms.

Having been a trial lawyer for 28 years, I understand that, while some cases need to be tried, the vast majority do not. I have mediated hundreds of cases, and am proud that my cases not only settle most of the time, but go forward with road maps for the parties’ future dealings.

The latter is crucial in family law cases, where families must find a way to get past the current crisis, and develop working relationships for the future. Being married with three children means that I also have realistic expectations and experiences to draw upon. No asset is more valuable than family, and I have been privileged to help families move forward through the worst chapters of their lives, to new beginnings, for over two decades.
