Few attorneys can boast the experience, knowledge and accomplishments that panels, courts and organizations require out of their mediators, whether in the courtroom, at the mediation table, or both. Since 1998, I have privately mediated over 1300 cases in a wide array of practice areas. My settlement rate has averaged nearly 90 percent over the last several years.

Simply stated, I possess the qualifications required toward successful dispute resolution short of the courtroom.

As lead counsel, I have tried more than 50 major cases that involved catastrophic personal injury (medical malpractice, product liability, traumatic brain injuries and wrongful death) and disputes involving construction, real estate, insurance, workers' compensation, employment law, and commercial law.

Additional qualifications and accomplishments include:

Whether I am hired by well-known law firms, insurance companies or high-profile businesses, I approach each process individually, focusing on the issues specific to each mediation.
