I have conducted over 300 mediations and settlement conferences. Before becoming a full time mediator and ADR Neutral, I was a litigator for 33 years. As a former partner in in Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal (now Dentons) and LeBoeuf, Lamb Greene & McRae, two prominent national law firms, I handled a wide variety of complex civil matters in trial and appellate courts including employment and discrimination claims, real estate and business disputes as well as insurance coverage and bad faith lawsuits. Several of these cases were resolved through mediation.
In addition to my private mediation practice, I serve as a mediator and early neutral evaluator in the federal court ADR Programs in the Bay Area (Northern District) and in Sacramento and Fresno (Eastern District). I am also on the mediation panels of the US Bankruptcy Court (Northern District) and the California Court of Appeal, Third Appellate District.
