Style of Mediation: My mediation style is situational, using
various methods to help the parties reach an acceptable
resolution to their conflict

Fee:  Mediations are billed by the case, however hourly rates
are available. The cost and length of the mediation is directly
dependent on the number and complexity of issues presented
as well as the willingness of each party to be forthcoming and
participatory.

Types of Mediation Practice: I focus on Employment, Workplace
Disputes and Civil Rights
