Description of Practice
Now mediating, arbitrating and serving as private judge online exclusively. Represented parties only. (www.MediateYourDisputeOnline.com).
In addition, I served on Faculty for the California Center for Judicial Education and Research (CJER) at the AOC, Faculty for National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) Domestic Violence Training, and The Elkins Family Law Task Force.
I currently serve as Adjunct Faculty at the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University School of Law. There, I teach judges, court personnel and attorneys about Mediation in Dissolution and Parentage cases. The training I co-created has been given thirteen times in California, Vermont and Maryland.
In October, 2015, I co-taught seventeen Judges and Attorneys in Singapore as part of a six-day (32 hour) Pepperdine/Straus training entitled "Mediating the Litigated Case."
Since 1992, I have mediated thousands of disputes with a very high rate of success.
Since 2001, I have presided over the trials and hearings in thousands of cases.
