|While my philosophy is facilitative, each matter is different. I speak with each side (counsel and client on a conference call) prior to the mediation, and thereafter propose an approach that is particular to their case, and agreeable to both sides. Joint sessions are my preferred method to identify and even resolve issues. Private sessions with shuttling back and forth by the mediator, however, may be the only productive method in certain cases.|
