Mediation | Arbitration |  Facilitation 

I am ready and available to work for you!


My substantial experience, compassion, and tenacity make me the right settlement facilitator for your hard to settle cases. If you need results and need them quickly, check my calendar and request a booking.


Should you need a special master, a neutral evaluator, a mini-trial judge, or a discovery referee, my experience as a general jurisdiction trial judge will quickly get your complex litigation under control and ready to resolve.


Whether your arbitration is being administered through the American Arbitration Association or is being done ad hoc, as a former judge with litigation management experience in complex civil cases, I will work with you and your party opponent to reach an affordable and fair result.


Find an open date that works for you and opposing counsel and request a booking with me directly from the calendar! I will confirm your booking within one day and will send both parties an engagement letter.
