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.
