    Attorney Profile

    Since starting my independent practice as a mediator, 97% of the cases, many of them difficult cases, have resolved through mediation.  Most of my mediations have involved employment or commercial disputes, including class action cases, mostly wage & hour disputes.

    For over 30 years I was a trial lawyer handling business cases (including class actions), with about half of those cases involving the employment relationship. That experience informs my understanding of the client needs of the parties and the practice realities counsel face in acting as a legal neutral.
