As a Certified Circuit Civil Mediator, I help bring peaceful resolutions to disputes in a way that is quick, professional and inexpensive. As a Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer, I can speak with experience and authority on the trial alternative to a mediated settlement agreement.

Almost all state and federal judges now require lawsuits to go through Mediation.  It is often the last best chance for the parties to control the outcome themselves. The alternative - trusting a jury of six strangers - is usually less appealing.

Many businesses and individuals are wisely seeking the early help of a Mediator before spending unnecessary time and money in a lawsuit. I am pleased to conduct presuit Mediations at a reduced rate.

The Florida Supreme Court's certification process is designed to ensure that Mediators are properly trained and skilled to help bring peace to disputes. Since my certification in the year 2000, I have been referred cases by judges, attorneys, businesses, individuals, the Better Business Bureau, and the State of Florida.  I have mediated a wide variety of legal issues, including Personal Injury, Commercial, Probate, Consumer, Nursing Home, Construction, Insurance, Eminent Domain, Collections, and PIP cases.
