|Using optimism and gentle persistence, my goal is to guide parties to a settlement by building a framework to constructively reach effective and efficient solutions. I begin the mediation with a facilitative approach, and move towards a directive approach if needed. If a settlement cannot be reached, the goal is to build a foundation from where the rest of the legal process can move forward smoothly.|
