I provide Arbitration, Mediation, and Alternate Dispute Resolution Services to represented parties who seek a smart solution to their disputes. Having litigated, mediated, and/or resolved over 400 cases, I can provide unique, confidential, and intelligent solutions to each case, at a fraction of the cost of litigation. I do not charge "set up", "Administrative" or "Initiation" fees.

What are the Advantages of Mediation?

  • The parties work cooperatively to find a solution, instead of having the judge make a decision for the disputants.

  • During the court hearing, the parties often have five or ten minutes to present their case, but in mediation, the parties have as long as they need to talk about the situation.

  • Mediation is confidential and private, so what the parties say in mediation cannot be used against them later in court.

  • The parties can talk about issues that are not directly related to the law but are very important to the parties and how they feel about the dispute.

  • The parties can reach an agreement that goes beyond the money issues and can include, for example, giving one side a chance to fix a problem, or apologize.

  • When a judge makes a decision, one or both sides may not be satisfied with the result. In mediation, however, both sides agree to the outcome as a mutual compromise.

What are the Advantages of Arbitration?

  • The parties are encouraged to work together peaceably and often participate in structuring the resolution, which avoids the escalation of anger and hostility often associated with litigation.

  • Since arbitration is a less formal and more flexible process, it is typically faster and more cost-efficient than the more cumbersome court process.

  • Unlike trials, arbitration proceedings can be scheduled around the needs and availabilities of the parties (depending on the availability of the arbitrator).

  • There are more simplified rules of evidence and procedure. The convoluted rules of evidence do not apply and the right to discovery – often criticized as a delaying and game-playing tactic – is either limited by the parties’ agreement or is at the arbitrator’s discretion (with a limited exception for personal injury cases).

  • There are limited grounds for judicial review in order to effectuate the parties’ agreement that the award be

  • The parties select their arbitrator or panel of arbitrators directly, enabling them to pick someone with the requisite amount of experience and subject matter expertise to render an accurate and appropriate award.

  • The arbitration process is private and confidential.
