Description of Practice

I specialize is assisting parties who are seeking non-adversarial solutions to conflict through a structured problem solving process that is goal-oriented and confidential.

I am an attorney and litigator who fully understands and appreciates the burdens and uncertainties all parties face in litigated cases. The adversarial process is not designed to be flexible or address individual needs. Parties caught up in litigation are discouraged from venturing outside the legal boundaries that fortify their positions and become entrenched in a winner/loser battle.

Today, disputing parties and their attorneys recognize the perils of litigation, not only because it is expensive, uncertain, and public, and denies the parties control in resolving their own conflicts, but it also takes a terrible and frequently irreparable human toll on all involved.

Mediation on the other hand, allows the parties the freedom to explore underlying and important truths that represent their interests and arrive at more meaningful resolutions not hampered by limitations the court may impose.

The constant I bring to every mediation table is my belief that "the answer is in the room!" I founded Westside Mediator to help people find that answer while ensuring that each party enjoys a safe and secure platform to resolve their issues confidentially with the greatest self-empowerment possible.

Come and join me in my commitment to the 21st century's intelligent dispute resolution.
