What is Arbitration?
Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute
resolution (ADR), is a technique for the resolution
of disputes outside the courts. The parties to a
dispute refer it to arbitration by one or more
persons (the "arbitrators", "arbiters" or "arbitral
tribunal"), and agree to be bound by the arbitration
decision (the "award"). A third party reviews the
evidence in the case and imposes a decision that
is legally binding on both sides and enforceable
in the courts. - Wikipedia Encyclopedia
My Philosophy and Practice as a Mediator
An arbitrator with judicial experience ensures reliable, predictable results. In every arbitration, I consider all evidence, briefing and oral argument; apply the same legal principles I would in a courtroom. I articulate the basis for my decision in a clear and concise manner. At the same time, arbitration is a flexible process and allows for creative and efficient dispute resolution giving each party the opportunity to be heard.
I have arbitrated a wide range of disputes, from local, family matters to sophisticated business disputes involving major corporations, multi-million-dollar claims, and extensive discovery.
Mediation and arbitration are inherently efficient and cost-effective processes and, when done properly,
can achieve outcomes that attorneys and litigants will respect.
