Mediation
Approach:


 
Businesslike or problem solving. My function is to help the parties reach a mutually acceptable resolution of their problem, not to prescribe a solution.
Arbitration
Approach:


 
Businesslike. I will, as a matter of practice, conduct preliminary hearings, normally by conference telephone call, and I am experienced at balancing the need for expedition in hearings withthe need for parties to have a full and fair opportunity to be heard.
Neutral
Approach:


 
Businesslike. My role is to assess where the case is, to develop a work plan to bring it to the point where discussion of settlement is feasible and then, if the parties desire, to assist them in such discussion.
