Harvard Law School's Harvard Negotiation Insight Initiative Forum Beyond Yes: Negotiation with Wisdom - Summer 2005 and 2006

I handle arbitrations formally or informally, as the parties and attorneys wish. I initially explore areas in which there may be stipulations re evidence and/or facts and allow each side adequate time to present its position and introduce evidence

Having experienced a wide variety of cases in the litigation atmosphere, including but not limited to, real estate, breach of contract and fraud, personal injury, and family law disputes. I have come to realize that litigation is generally unsatisfactory to both sides of a dispute. I have developed and incorporated into my practice negotiation skills in an effort to assist parties in reaching resolution short of litigation - including arbitration, mediation, collaboration, or a hybrid of these approaches. I recently attended, and continue to participate in, Harvard Law School's Harvard Negotiation Insight Initiative Forum and continue to develop skills in resolving parties' disputes.
