Alternative Dispute Resolution

My 20 years of experience as a defense litigator and additional 12+ years of experience contracting for both defendants’ and plaintiffs’ attorneys has provided me with a unique perspective and objectivity that is ideal for arbitration and mediation.

As an attorney who has tried jury trials to verdict, I understand the costs and uncertainties of litigation – and the appropriate use of arbitration and mediation as alternative forms of dispute resolution. My commitment as an arbitrator or mediator is to provide neutral, well-reasoned, and objective decision making to resolve your case quickly and fairly.  My legal areas of expertise include:

•    Negligence
•    Wrongful death
•    Product liability
•    Toxic torts
•    Railroad and trucking
•    Insurance coverage
