Our Philosophy

Resolving a dispute in a matter of hours rather than months, or even years, reduces stress for both clients and lawyers.

With more than 60 years of collective experience as both mediators and trial lawyers, we bring insights from both worlds to help you settle your disputes quickly.  

We offer an impartial overview of the conflict and help guide the parties to a reasonable resolution, all within a safe, civilized environment.

While some disputes are purely about dollars, other conflicts are more heated. We're experienced in calming angry opponents while still giving them the satisfaction of having their grievances heard.   

We have worked with people from all walks of life and enjoy explaining the mediation process and how it will benefit them.

We believe in mediation. In our long careers as lawyers, we have seen how much emotional upheaval is caused by the adversarial approach. We have also seen the financial and emotional benefits of the mediation process.

That's why we choose to do mediation. In our experience, it's in everyone's best interest to make the courts a last resort.
