For more than thirty years, my practice has focused on the litigation, arbitration and mediation of complex construction disputes. I also have extensive experience in the negotiation and drafting of construction and other procurement contracts including engineering agreements, architectural service agreements, general contracts, subcontracts, construction management agreements, cable television service contracts and equipment purchase agreements. This construction claims and contracting experience has related to a wide variety of commercial projects including high-rise office structures, hospitals, hotels, shopping centers, wastewater treatment plants, industrial buildings, hydroelectric plants, and sports arenas. I also have extensive experience with both single-family and multi-family residential projects.

I have successfully mediated disputes for more than ten years, and have actively served as an arbitrator for more than twenty years. My mediation practice has encompassed disputes by and between owners, real estate developers, contractors, subcontractors, sureties, architects, engineers, insurance companies, local governing authorities and others. As a pro-active mediator with the benefit of wide construction experience, I have an excellent record of helping parties resolve disputes. Additionally, as an arbitrator I have served individually, and as a panel member, on both large and complex cases, as well as on small fast-track cases, involving virtually every type of construction project. This arbitration experience also provides unique insight which is often helpful in the mediation process.
