I also conduct settlement conferences in San Francisco, Santa Clara and Marin County Superior Courts. I currently serve on the Board of the Directors of The Mediation Society.
ADR Style: 
I am available for Mediation, Early Neutral Evaluation and Facilitation. My mediation style is a mixture of facilitative and evaluative. I work closely with all parties to achieve a practical solution that terminates difficult and hard fought litigation. I listen intently, communicate clearly, and bring patience, perseverance and neutrality to a case. All participants will be fully heard, and all positions considered.
