Brief
Thumbnail:


During the last six years I have exlusively devoted my practice to serving as a mediator, arbitrator, and neutral evaluator. During the preceeding thirty-seven years I was a civil trial lawyer. Since commencing an ADR practice I have mediated over five hundred cases. I have an A.B. degree from Stanford University. After serving as a captain in the U.S. Marine Corps I attended Stanford Law School and graduated with a J.D. degree. I was admited to the California Bar in 1960. I have an A.V. Martindale & Hubbell rating (an independent company which evaluates lawyers and law firms throughout the country; this rating is only given to the top 5% based upon integrity, achievement and reputation) Periodically, over the years, I have served in Alameda County as a Judge Pro Tem. I serve on the mediation panel of the Califronia Academy of Distinguished Neutrals.
