ADR Experience

I do not accept litigated cases, but work exclusively to resolve family and marital issues in a non-adversarial process of either collaborative divorce, collaborative divorce mediation or divorce/family mediation. Since leaving litigation, I have now handled over 100 cases in a nonadverasarial process where success is defined as a “winwin” result for both parties and children.


My approach to dispute resolution is that all people want a life of peace and tranquility, and not one of unsustainable daily stress. My task as the professional is to lead the parties on the path where peace is not only attainable but the path leads to a place grounded on fair and equitable solutions that enable the parties not only “breath” in the present but also see a bright future full of promise.


I received my B.A. Degree, Summa Cum Laude, from The Ohio State University in 1974, and my J.D. Degree, Cum Laude, also from The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, in 1977.
