Joe has been mediating and arbitrating disputes both as a neutral and as a party advocate since 1997. He has arbitrated and mediated well over 1,000 cases in that time.

Joe's knowledge and experience give him special insight to the procedural, evidentiary, and cost dynamics that are inherent in all cases.

Joe began his legal career as an associate at a personal injury law firm.  He then jumped into the trenches and worked as a trial lawyer for two national insurance companies. He also served as multi-state special investigations liasion and coverage counsel.  Joe then took his trial skills and built a business transaction and litigation, injury and dispute resolution practice.
