Mediation
Approach:


 
I am facilitative, in that I explore creative options for resolving a dispute in a way which satisfies most of the parties\' goals. But I am directive in that I give specific advice on negotiation strategy, and tell the parties whether their position has merit. I identify the range in which the parties will settle the case, then push hard for settlement within that range --whether or not I personally believe that range is realistic or fair.
Arbitration
Approach:


 
I tend to follow normal rules of procedure and evidence, but vary them to promote efficiency and cost savings. I limit the parties to truly essential discovery. I take detail notes on my laptop. I issue awards promptly, always within 30 days. I follow the law, hoping to replicate the result the parties would receive in court.
Neutral
Approach:


 
I listen, then I tell the parties very specifically exactly what I think as to both liability and the likely range of damages.
Other
Information:


 
I am a full-time dispute resolution professional and teacher who believes strongly in mediation. People pay me to help them resolve their problems - and that\'s what I try hard to do. If it does not resolve in one session, I follow up relentlessly.
