Having spent 10 years as a trial attorney and far more time in a business setting I truly understand why most disputes should be settled and not litigated. That is why I completed a Masters in Psychology which I will combine with my legal and business experience to become the best mediator I can possibly become. I have started this on a part-time basis which will be expanded when I retire from the Insurance Industry in October. Hopefully, I'll be able to continue helping solve problems until I make that final journey decades in the future.
Primary mediation experience has been in commercial issues, including business breakups, real estate issues and insurance as well as mediation in the social/fraternal organizational areas. Arbitration experience has primarily involved contract issues, both insurance and sale of goods
Juris Doctor -- Fordham University School of Law. M.S., Industrial/Organizational Psychology -- Walden University. B.S. in Business Administration -- Marketing -- SouthEast Missouri State University
A sliding scale from facilitative through evaluative mediation depending on the issues involved, the parties relationship and where we are during the mediation process.
Basic hourly rate is $400. Will discount for low $$ amount disputes or those within social/fraternal/non-profit organizational framework.
In addition to mediation, I've acted as a sole arbitrator for consumer/warranty issues and have been part of a panel for a variety of matters.
