Professional Background

Graduate of Dartmouth College and Washington University Law School. 27 years of dispute resolution experience. Practice included family, intellectual property, health and employment law with major firms in D.C and Los Angeles. Served as chief counsel to federal environmental agencies, and headed the medition program for the U.S. Interior Department. Chaired state medical privacy counsel.


Trained with some of the top mediators in the country. Have mediated numerous cases, from complex environmental and divorces to employment and business disputes. Have expansive knowledge of mediation techniques, practical experience, and patience, and can get excellent results in a cost effective manner.


A multi-style approach to fit the needs of the parties. I try to maintain a civilized, mature environment, where "venting" is discouraged. In child custody cases, if the parties agree I work with a psychologist who specializes in "divorce recovery" to enhance the chances of successful mediation and enhanced ability to "co-parent."


$300-375/hr, depending upon type of case. Will take financial circumstances into consideration.
Travel is extra.
Credit cards accepted.
