Description of Practice

Mediation of Civil/Commercial/Business disputes, especially Labor & Employment, Real Estate & Construction and Environmental, Training & Presentations and Divorce Mediation.

Professional Background

20 years as COO of Fortune 500 warehousing/distribution ctr in NY Metro. Responsible for HR, Labor Relations, Contract Neg., Legal, Insurance, Operations Mgmt, Fleet Mgmt, Environemental Issues and Information Services. Chairman, Company Ethics Committee. NJ Association of Professional Mediators Accredited Civil/Commercial Mediator and Chairman of the NJAPM Communications Committee.


Over 1000 mediations in the last 10 years. Presently a contract mediator for the EEOC. Mediate for the Superior Court System of NJ, listed on the AOC mediators list. Do mediation implementation programs in Schools. Mediate private disputes.


I hold a B.S. in Biology and an M.B.A. both from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA.


Primarily Facilitative Mediation approach. Some Evaluative methods are incorporated. A very informal and empathetic approach is employed. Concentration is centered on reaching a "Mutually Acceptable" agreement. NO Coercion is incorporated in the techniques I utilize. The feelings and perceptions of the disputants govern the final outcome and agreement.


Present rate of compensation is $240.00 per hour. Daily rate of $1500.00 (10 hour max day, if day is over 10 hours, hourly rate is applied to overage) Seminar and Training prices differ depending on particular client needs.

Other Information

I have a very high settlement rate in mediation which is running around 73%. My objective is to help people and further, to help them be in control of their own problem resolution instead of allowing some Judge or other uninvolved third party to make the determination for them.
