Approach

I have substantial training and experience in various mediation styles including, evaluative, facilitative, transformative and narrative. I will work with you and your attorney or representative to tailor the mediation process to the needs of the parties and nature of the dispute. My mediation process can also assess the conflict competency of the parties and can provide coaching when needed. As to arbitration, I will usually hold a pre-hearing telephonic conference to review with the parties the many ways we can structure the arbitration process which can vary widely depending on the type,complexity, number of parties and the amount of the claim. At the time of the prehearing conference, we will also discuss and implement appropriate rules for the arbitration and will schedule a definite calendar for all aspects of the case.

Fees

A $250 p/hr fee with a 2 hr. minimum is standard, however the fee can vary depending on such things as the arbitration panel,the complexity of the case, issues involved and whether the matter is proceeding through a pre-arranged plan or service.

Other Information

My goal is to help parties in conflict to achieve fair results at a reasonable cost. I will work with the participants and/or their legal counsel to design a suitable process in which participants will feel heard and respected. Agreements reached through mediation and awards made through the arbitration process will be very sensitive to this.
