Excellence. Professionalism. Compassion. Tenacity.
I work hand-in-hand with my clients to address the law taking into account the emotional conflicts that often underlie the legal situation. I consider what forum is most appropriate given each client’s circumstances — which dispute resolution process — mediation, arbitration, collaborative law or litigation — will produce the most satisfactory and cost effective result.
