Description of Practice

My mediation style is predominantly evaluative. I used my 23 years of legal experience to examine the strengths and weaknesses of the parties’ controversy and their legal positions. However, I do not force or coerce a party to accept a settlement, but through discussion of the facts and evidence of the controversy and the interests of the parties bring the parties together to a settlement. I open the mediation as a group first to explain the mediation process, and then to discuss the case as a group to determine where the parties agree on facts and law, and to narrow the issues in controversy. Then, I will caucus with each side individually and discuss the strengths and weakness of their case, determine from the discussions with the parties what are the obstacles to settlement, and make suggestions for formulas to reach a settlement, and when asked will make a mediator’s settlement proposal. The goal of my mediation process is first to settle the case, but if the case does not settle to give the parties at the end of a mediation session, a road map to settlement of the controversy, knowledge of the obstacles of settlement, ways the parties can overcome those obstacles and leave the parties with the satisfaction that their viewpoints, positions and interests have been thoroughly discussed and considered by all sides at the mediation session.
