I am a Mediator in Texas and an Attorney admitted in California with over thirty years of experience, including a strong business background. In addition to the required mediation course for professional mediators, I have advanced training in family/divorce mediations and belong to the Association of Attorney-Mediators and a member of the family law section of the bar.
Our firm, Mediators and Arbitrators of America (www.mediatorsoftexas.com), consists of a team of experienced lawyers, mediators, chaplains, lobbyists and business owners who mediate, teach mediation classes and also provide in-house training programs in alternative dispute resolution skills for corporations and community groups. We are unique in that we offer “CO” and gender balanced mediations.
Personally, my background includes working at two national law firms and teaching Law. In addition, I have operated, managed, secured funding for and repositioned companies, as well as leading turnaround initiatives and developing brands. I am an active private investor and have negotiated for the SATRA Group in Russia. I proactively work with in-house general counsels, have served on the Boards of private and non-profit companies and have had articles published in The Business Lawyer and Pacific Law Journal, among others. I speak frequently on mediation topics, including the advantages of co-mediation in multi-party and complex situations.
I specialize in commercial disputes, family/divorce settlements and cost effective resolution of high-stakes litigation arising from complex business transactions, personal injury, divorce, breach of contract, employment issues, and infringement of intellectual property rights.
