I am a full-time dispute resolution specialist, serving as a mediator and arbitrator. I am listed as one of the 2008 and 2009 Best Lawyers in America in the speciality of Alternative Dispute Resolution. I was awarded the Oregon Mediation Associaton's 2008 Sid Lezak Award for Excellence for outstanding service to the profession of mediation in Oregon.
