Whenever possible I use interests based mediation methods. Strive for a win-win based on the overall needs and wants of the parties rather than just negotiation of positions. But sometimes the dispute comes down to a monetary difference of opinion which needs to be resolved and I have experience in this setting also.


Normally just charge for time spent preparing and mediating/arbitrating. No minimum fee. Daily rate if requested. Please contact me for current rate and with any questions. Fees should be transparent and simple to understand.

I look forward to working with you.
