Mediation Profile

In addition to mediating and arbitrating commercial disputes, I teach negotiation, mediation, and arbitration, including international arbitration and mediation at the University of Florida Levin College of Law.

I have mediated around 1000 cases over the past 20 years.

I use a hybrid approach. I am comfortable with either a facilitative or evaluative style. I do not practice a transformative model. I generally adjust my approach based on the requirements of the parties and of the particular case. My style may vary during the mediation as required.

I mediate commercial disputes. I have extensive experience mediating disputes involving all aspects of financial services, employment, and closely held partnership or corporate dissolutions. I also have experience in the areas of entertainment, franchise, insurance, and general commercial disputes.

Training and Education

I was first trained as a mediator in 1993 by what was then the NASD in New York as well as in Texas. Since 1993, I have taken numerous trainings.

I am a frequent speaker and trainer on mediation, mediation advocacy, and negotiation. I present regularly at a number of Bar Associations, Corporations, and Law Firms. Additionally, I teach negotiation and mediation related skills at the University of Florida Levin College of Law in Gainesville, Florida.
