Member of the insurance panel of the "Best Lawyers in America" and the "Superlawyers" as published for the last several years by New York Magazine and New Jersey Magazine. Fellow Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. Member of the AAA and the District of New Jersey Hurricane Sandy ADR Panels. Has appeared on panels with other select arbitrators for insurance coverage disputes, primarily on behalf of the insureds who have appointed her as a party appointee. These arbitrations have been conducted under the auspices of both CPR as well as the American Arbitration Association and its international affiliate, the International Center for Dispute Resolution. Arbitrator with the AAA since 1996 for the construction and commercial litigation panels. Member of the select group of AAA commercial and construction mediators. Following appointments by the AAA, asked to mediate for the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey. Member of that panel since 2000 and has been asked by the Court to renew her appointment. Success rate at resolving commercial mediations exceeds 85%.

Has mediated over 500 cases privately and for the federal and state courts.

Certified by the Supreme Court of Florida as a Circuit Mediator - number 3327GR.

My philosophy as a mediator is that I act as a facilitator but an not reluctant to provide a candid, frank, evaluation of the parties' positions, if parties so consent.  I will evaluate the case for settlement purposes based upon my professional evaluation, the subtexts I am discerning from the parties and counsel, and where I feel a common ground might be achieved.

If the parties are amenable, I will spend time with each side and rather have parties give up positions in the legal proceeding will speak extensively with them so that they need not modify offers or demands, but rather consider a common number that I will recommend.

Although this is a novel approach, it often works when parties are anxious to resolve the dispute, yet reluctant to alter their positions with respect to the adverse side.

In effect, in those cases, they are mediating with the mediator.  

I have many attorneys that routinely refer mediation cases to me based upon my historical track record.  Many attorneys over the past 15 years have repeatedly sent me their cases to mediate based upon my prior track record. This is of course disclosed to the adverse side.  

As for arbitration, I have handled complex construction cases and have acted as party appointed as well as Chair of such panels.  I have also acted as R-7 Arbitrator in the context of joinder of parties.  

Arbitration matters have been handled domestically and internationally where disputes involve projects outside the United States.
