Approach

I believe that unless litigation or arbitration is the only alternative left for the parties, mediation is preferred. I am able to use the directed method or the facilitative method in mediation depending upon the needs of situation or the parties. I also am experienced in Christian conciliation or peacemaking, having acted on behalf of the San Jose Presbytery in California for a three year period.

Fees

All fees are subject to negotiation and depend upon the needs and abilities of the parties.
