Core Philosophy:

"I have a strong belief that the mediation process is an excellent procedure for parties to attempt to work out reasonable solutions and avoid the costs of litigation. I have had great success in mediation as a party advocate and mediator, and firmly believe the process can work when both sides approach it in relatively good faith.

Quite simply, I believe there are two basic rules in medation:

Rule 1: Never give up.
Rule 2: See No. 1."
