Description of Practice

As a mediator my goal is to provide a unique perspective to clients interested in the mediation process as a non-attorney mediator. My approach to dispute resolution combines my years of litigation experience with the perspective of a non-attorney. I focus my mediation practice in the resolution of civil litigation disputes, including, but not limited to, breach of contract, homeowner association mediation, boundary disputes, neighborhood disputes, landlord-tenant, asset valuation and complex civil litigation.

Professional Background

Since obtaining my paralegal certificate from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2005, I focused primarily in the areas of eminent domain and civil litigation. As a member of the litigation team I focused on theory, strategy and trial readiness. In 2014 I expanded my focus to include alternative dispute resolution and became a mediator.
