ADR Training: 
Mediate.com Online Training Course (40 hours) I also have participated in a variety of settlement conferences and mediations for clients.
ADR Style: 
I typically will begin with a joint session and then, depending upon the progress made, I will caucus with the different sides. Generally, I take a collaborative approach to facilitate settlement discussions, focused on consensus building, communicating competing positions or proposals and offering suggestions for consideration by the respective parties. However, sometimes I also will use an evaluative approach when necessary or appropriate to assist the parties by focusing on key issues, particular strengths or weaknesses of their case, and/or the potential risks or costs of not resolving their dispute.
