Professional Background

I am a Court Approved Civil and Domestic Relations Mediator. As a mediator and attorney with over thirty-five years of experience, I have directed and participated in legal matters and negotiations in general business with a pharmaceutical company,in animal health,environmental,compliance and as a small business owner and in numerous divorce and family disputes.


I have over 180 hours of mediation training and many years of experience as a civil and domestic mediator. My divorce mediation cases have involved custody and child support, parenting time, school choice, spousal support, property division, QDROs, debt allocation and mortgage refinancing. My commercial mediations have included business partnership and family business generational disputes, manufacturing defect cases, sexual and racial harassment and unjust termination, personal injury and landlord-tenant matters. Much of my legal career was spent as a division general counsel doing corporate law so I've been involved in mediating complex business arrangements and valuation of complicated business transactions.
