To be effective, the mediator must have litigation experience. I have been practicing before California State and Federal courts for over 40 years. Litigation matters involved garment industry disputes, will contest and probate trust disputes, contested real property ownership matters and personal injury claims.

To be effective, the mediator must have hands on experience in the real world of commerce. After discharge from the army, I worked for a garment manufacturer (women's coats)and as a department manager at Macy's Herald Square store. After leaving Macy's I opened and managed retail women's ready-to-wear stores in New Jersey. I then went to Southwestern University School of Law at night and was admitted to the California Bar in 1973.

To be effective, the mediator must be cost effective. Mediation services are billed at the rate of $300.00 per hour, the cost shared by the disputing parties.

My ADR style is predicated upon the concept that parties in dispute are best served by seeking a fair and expeditious resolution of their dispute through mediation, rather than litigation. As said by former Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Berger: "The notion that most people want black robed judges, well dressed lawyers and fine paneled courtrooms as the setting to resolve their disputes is not correct. People with problems, like people with pains, want relief, and they want it as quickly and inexpensively as possible."
