Legal Experience

Experience: 35+ years of multi-jurisdictional employment litigation, mostly in federal courts. I have been engaged in trial practice since 1977. From 1992 - 2001, I represented mostly plaintiffs. From 2001 - 2003, it was mostly defendants. All other years have mixed plaintiffs and defendants, about 50/50.

70% representing Defendants
40% in Federal Courts
60% in State Courts
Other Experience:

Additional Details: I believe that it takes more than shuttling numbers to successfully mediate a case. I will use my knowledge of the substantive area of law and practical experience litigating similar cases, especially for both plaintiffs and defendants, to generate options that will lead to resolution.

Rate: $335 per hour. Lunch and parking are provided for mediations taking place in my law office.
