I help people solve problems and resolve conflicts. I entered law school following 25 years as a technical communicator in the publishing and high‑tech industries. In those multidisciplinary environments, I developed listening, negotiation, and mediation skills that proved to be a natural transition for practicing law and alternative dispute resolution (ADR).
I was fortunate to meet Justice Frank G. Evans, who introduced me to ADR, during my first year of law school. Working for him the next two years was instrumental in fueling my belief in and passionate commitment to ADR.
When people have conflicts, they usually choose either fight or flight.
Let me help you choose light. Let’s sit down together and have a conversation.
"In its final analysis, a litigation is a fight. It is a more civilized method of settling disputes than the duel or battlefield. People who fight are apt to get hurt, no matter how they fight. It is so in court. Litigants rarely are entirely satisfied at the termination of a litigation. It usually is costly in time, money, and trouble.
Why not try conciliation? Life at best is a game of give and take. One never gains everything one seeks. Therefore I say, meet the other person part way. Be conciliatory. If the other person is worthwhile, you will probably retain his friendship or at least, goodwill. You never will do that by fighting."
Justice Edgar J. Lauer, New York Municipal, 1925
