ADR Experience/Training

My mediation practice focuses on the resolution of conflicts between co-owners of property in a personal relationship - marital, non-marital, friendship, and parent/child or siblings - as well as Tenancy-in-Common disputes, and other real property and business disputes. I have more than 25 years litigation experience, and have been trained through Gary Friendman and the Federal Court program. My goal is to integrate the personal issues into a comprehensive approach to practical problem solving.
