Description of Practice

Drawing on over 15 years of experience, I am thrilled to now be serving clients exclusively in a neutral capacity as a mediator. My mediation practice is primarily focused on employment matters, but I also have experience mediating general civil, probate, real estate, domestic relations, workers compensation, landlord/tenant, and community disputes.

I have completed over 100 hours of mediation training and regularly mediate for the Oregon Court of Appeals Settlement Conference Program, EEOC, and Clackamas County Resolution Services. I am also on the panel for civil mediation for the U.S. District Court of Oregon. I am a member of the Oregon Mediation Association, and I follow the OMA Standards of Practice and OMA Guidelines.

I believe mediation is most effective when the mediator is committed to understanding and meeting the unique needs of the parties. I make myself available to discuss each party’s expectations prior to mediation, and work diligently to facilitate a resolution whenever possible.

Professional Background

In addition to my private mediation practice, I am currently the Appellate Staff Attorney for the Oregon Court of Appeals Settlement Conference Program. In this role, I mediate appellate matters and otherwise assist parties involved in appeals to reach facilitated resolutions whenever possible.

As a partner at Folger Levin LLP in San Francisco, my law practice focused primarily on labor and employment law, including litigation, advice and counseling, and training for employers. I have significant experience handling all types of employment cases, including discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wage-and-hour, whistleblower, and other claims. I also negotiated employment and separation agreements on behalf of employees and employers.

Additionally, I represented plaintiffs and defendants in all stages of various complex commercial litigation matters, including toxic tort, insurance coverage, unfair competition, and contract matters.

I represented a variety of clients in my private law practice, including public and private entities, start-up ventures, small and large companies, individuals, families, non-profits, schools, and universities. I bring my experience representing a diverse array of clients to the table as a neutral to assist parties as they navigate the legal and emotional issues involved in their particular dispute.
