I try to maintain an informal atmosphere but I require pretty strict adherence to the rules of evidence. I am flexible if the parties agree to proceed otherwise by way of offers of proof with the right of cross-examination preserved.

The judicial arbitration process serves an important role in resolving civil litigation. It is often the first time the parties have their case reviewed by an objective, neutral evaluator. Judicial arbitration is responsible for settlement of numerous civil actions without the parties incurring the time, trouble and expense of a trial before a judge or jury.
