As a mediator, I not only help attorneys and their clients explore and evaluate their legal position, I help them address issues and resolve their concerns in creative ways as a result of my industry experience. I mediate:
- Real Estate disputes
- Business and Commercial disputes
- Landlord Tenant
- Breach of Contract
- Construction Defect
- Homeowner Association (HOA)
- Business / Commercial
Mediation avoids expensive, lengthy and risky litigation and works for business minded parties because business is fueled by cooperation. Early mediation allows parties and counsel to focus on core issues instead of wading through discovery in the hope of finding some obscure fact. The search is exciting but rarely productive.
Because litigation is inefficient, expensive and unpredictable, mediation gives the parties control over their dispute and therefore, control over their expense of time and money. It allows compromise and eliminates the risk of the typical zero-sum result of a trial.
