After participating as an attorney advocate in mediation and arbitration for over 20 years,I enrolled in a Master's degree program in Alternative Dispute Resolution to learn more about the ADR processes. I graduated with a Master's degree in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution from the Creighton University School of Law (Werner Institute) in 2013.

I have substantial training and experience in various mediation styles including, evaluative, facilitative, transformative and narrative. I will work with you and your attorney or representative to tailor the mediation process to the needs of the parties and nature of the dispute. My mediation process can also assess the conflict competency of the parties and can provide coaching when needed. As to arbitration, I will follow the rules of any administered program and in the event of a non-administered arbitration,I will provide appropriate rules depending on the nature and complexity of claims, number of parties and alleged damages. In non-administered arbitrations,I will usually hold a prehearing telephonic conference to review with the parties or their attorneys the many ways we can structure the arbitration process.


A $250 p/hr fee with a 2 hr. minimum is standard, however, the fee can vary depending on such things as the arbitration panel, the complexity of the case, issues involved and whether the matter is proceeding through a prearranged plan or service. Fees associated with mediation express are as posted and will not exceed $200 per hour.

Other Information

My goal is to help parties in conflict to achieve fair results at a reasonable cost. I will work with the participants and/or their legal counsel to design a suitable process in which participants will feel heard and respected. Agreements reached through mediation and awards made through the arbitration process will be very sensitive to this.
