In 2015, I became MCDR Certified in mediation.

I have been admitted to several mediation panels including: Maryland District Court, EEOC, and American Health Lawyers Association, FINRA and the Better Business Bureau.

Alternative Dispute Resolution – Mediation
Thank you for contacting me about mediation services. I am a trained mediator who practices in several venues including: private business and commercial, court-based, public safety, EEOC, and healthcare. My philosophy is to tailor mediation to the clients and to the situation. The bottom line is that mediation should allow disputing parties to reach an agreement and avoid the time and cost of protracted court battles. Our goal is to reach agreement, not to assess blame.
