Why I Choose to Mediate

I have tried a lot of cases since I became a lawyer almost 30 years ago. And no matter how successful the outcome of a trial, I have never had a client say, “Gee, that was fun! I’d like to do that again!”

It doesn’t matter who “wins” or who “loses” at trial. The fact is, for all the litigants involved, trials and the litigation process are stressful, distracting, inefficient, and time-consuming. They also take their toll – financially, physically, and emotionally. The result is uncertain because the decision is left to strangers who will never understand or care about your dispute as much as you do.

The mediation process is successful and desirable because it puts the power in your hands to end the litigation according to terms you choose. Mediation isn’t just about ending legal disputes. It’s about quality of life.

I choose to mediate because I can bring decades of litigation experience and strategy to the mediation process to assist parties in bridging the seemingly unbridgeable differences between them and help them move on with their lives and their businesses.
