Description of Practice:

Through effective communication and sensitivity to the parties and issues I attempt to create a basis for settlement. My style is flexible, initially facilitative, but evaluative where necessary. My goal is to have the parties actively participate in the settlement process, and make the result as mutually rewarding as possible. My neutrality advances the possibility of settlement. I am a managerial arbitrator. I have significant language capabilities and in addition to English have mediated successfully in French and Spanish.

Professional Background

Initial Training: Pepperdine Law School, Straus Institute Dispute Resolution. Arbitration Training ABA.I have had a lengthy dual track career in real estate and investment management and development and as CFO of an entertainment industry firm. Substantial first hand transactional experience with insurance, partnerships, land use, building, finance, contract negotiations,arts and entertainment, intellectual property, employment issues. Over 200 hours of mediation/arbitration training and eight years as a mediator.


I have had extensive experience with transactional disputes. I have resolved disputes with multiple parties, being able to successfully discern and focus on the unique needs of each party. In real estate cases, trusts and estates, construction, commercial cases and cases involving insurance matters,as well as employment matters, I have been acknowledged and thanked by both sides for resolving issues that they they had previously felt were not subject to negotiation and settlement.
