I am a generalist who is also a patent, trademark, and copyright attorney. I have been a computer programmer, a chemical process engineer, and a consulting engineer. I was a partner in a major multi-national law firm for over two decades and left to become a sole practitioner so I could concentrate on Alternative Dispute Resolution. I love being a mediator and an arbitrator because it is sometimes emotionally challenging, usually intellectually interesting, and always highly satisfying.

For me, being an ADR neutral is an avocation, not merely a vocation. Every mediation is an opportunity for me to help others settle their differences; every arbitration is an opportunity for me to make sense of conflicting views and make serious decisions. It is a privilege for me to assist in these difficult situations. Each matter allows me to utilize a varying mix of skills and knowledge (interpersonal, organizational, analytical, legal, business, management, STEM, etc.) and requires from me an open mind, careful listening and observation, fairness, clear thinking, creativity, flexibility, patience, and hard work.

I have handled matters in every sector of the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), including agriculture, mining, construction, manufacturing, transportation, information, finance, real estate, professional services, waste management and remediation, education services, health care, arts and entertainment, and accommodation and food services.

I am a Fellow of the College of Commercial Arbitrators, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, a Fellow of the American College of e-Neutrals, a Member of the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals, a Member of the CPR Panel of Distinguished Neutrals, a Member/Panelist of the Silicon Valley Arbitration & Mediation Center, an American Arbitration Association Commercial Master Mediator, a Member of the ICDR Panel of International Mediators, and a CEDR Accredited Mediator.
