After 27 years of advocacy, I have enthusiastically expanded my roles to include mediation and arbitration.
I recently completed a two-year Fellowship with the American Bar Association Section of Dispute Resolution.
Mediation: I serve as a Judge Pro Tempore with the Maricopa County Superior Court on a volunteer, as-needed basis to assist in the settlement of litigation matters. I've been a student of human behavior since earning my economics degree in 1991. My complementary role as a wellness professional, enhances my ability to facilitate connections, put people at ease, and build trust. As a persuasive communicator, intuitive listener, and seasoned commercial litigator, I can identify and overcome obstacles to settlement.
Arbitration: I proudly serve on the AAA's National Roster of Arbitrators. I spent much of my early career immersed in arbitration — as a student clerking for a California arbitrator, and as a New York lawyer in the collective bargaining context. Upon moving to Arizona, my practice shifted to advocacy with commercial panels. At the ABA's 13th Annual Arbitration Training Institute, I re-connected with longtime mentors who encouraged me to join them as a neutral.
