Let Me Resolve Your Dispute!

Using the technology of Zoom or similar virtual platforms, I bring the dispute resolution medium to you, rather than having you expend time and expense traveling to the seat of a mediation or arbitration. This saves you time, money, and inconvenience. 

Litigation Vs. Mediation

Mediation is a process for resolving disputes by which an independent mediator assists the parties in reaching a mutually satisfactory settlement. It is an extension of the parties own negotiations and is sometimes referred to as a “supercharged negotiation.”

A mediation session involves a discussion of the dispute by the parties, as opposed to the formal presentation of witnesses and evidence such as takes place in a trial or arbitration. The session will normally be attended only by the mediator, the parties and their attorneys. Because of the informality of the process, a mediation can usually be completed in a day or less.

“Traditional litigation is a mistake that must be corrected… For some disputes trials will be the only means, but for many claims trials by adversarial contest must in time go the way of the ancient trial by battle and blood. Our system is too costly, too painful, too destructive, too inefficient for really civilized people.”
Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, (Ret.) U.S. Supreme Court.

Why Choose Me To Be Your Mediator?

My mediation style is that I am primarily a facilitative mediator; that is, I use techniques to help the parties to find effective ways to communicate and hear each other, to separate emotions from financial decisions, to make informed and fair settlement decisions in light of the law, and to understand their interests in order to identify options that may work to resolve their dispute.

I arbitrate legal-fee disputes between clients and attorneys in New York County.

I am a mediator with Community Mediation Services.

I am a Community Dispute Resolution Center (CDRC) in Queens County.
