|Approach is flexible depending upon the type of case and the needs of the parties and attorneys involved. I usually begin with a facilitative style and find this most effective in cases involving intense emotion and on-going relationships. However, I also use evaluative methods as necessary to promote informed decision-making and and improved potential for settlement.|
