My mediation style is best described as flexible, creative, and tenacious. I get involved with the details and facts of the case, ask poignant questions, and make creative suggestions. I strive to assist each side to appreciate the strengths and weaknesses of their case, and the risks of proceeding to trial, with the goal of having each side arrive at a realistic evaluation of their, with the target of arriving at an acceptable settlement.
