Dispute resolution is at the heart of what I do as a litigator. Resolution, whether by settlement or judgment, it is always the goal to achieve the best economic result for my clients. In addition to resolving my clients’ problems, I have served as a Settlement Conference Judge Pro Tem regularly since 1989 for the Sacramento Superior Court, and have served as arbitrator for and Sacramento and El Dorado County Superior Courts and in private commercial arbitrations.
Serving as a neutral in an arbitration process while actively pursuing an litigation practice, gives me the opportunity to analyze the parties rights and claims from both a litigation and business perspective that considers both the law and practical effect of the parties positions. Unlike many mediators who also handle arbitrations, when I serve as a mediator I search for practical solutions, but when I serve as an arbitrator I seek the correct solution and apply the law and the agreement of the parties. I feel that compromise decisions are not what parties to an arbitration seek or deserve.
I have settled hundreds of cases for other lawyers and their clients over the years by bringing a neutral view to a charged litigation process.
