“You can’t shake hands with a clenched fist.”
— Indira Gandhi

We have years of legal experience in Trial and Appellate Courts, in Board Rooms, in Mediations and Arbitrations. We have been trusted advisors to clients and have resolved innumerable lawsuits and pre-suit disputes, including Commercial, Civil and Insurance Litigation involving a wide range of issues.

We understand the personal/emotional, business, insurance and coverage issues that can be key components in resolving litigation and are quick studies with the ability to simplify disputes and to not let parties give up during the negotiation process.  

We work with party counsel in advance of each mediation, to prepare for each mediation session so that the session can be as productive as possible and, if settlement is not reached during session, work with counsel telephonically post-mediation to see if further discussions might lead to resolution as early as possible.

Mediation Day is a very important day for the Parties and we approach it as such.

We would be pleased to work with you, your clients or lawyer to help find SOLUTIONS that bring RESOLUTION and CLOSURE to litigation or other disputes through either Mediation or Arbitration - freeing those involved from the uncertainties, risks and expense that comes with conflict and litigation.  

The Courts ... should not be Places where Resolution of Disputes Begins. They should be the Places where the Disputes End, after Alternative Methods of Resolving Disputes have been Considered and Tried.
— Justice Sandra Day O'Connor
