Since 2010, after a fifteen year career as a N.J. Superior Court Judge presiding over civil jury and non-jury trials, I have offered my services as a mediator/arbitrator throughout New Jersey and the Greater Philadelphia Metropolitan Area, handling a broad array of case types, including but not limited to medical and legal malpractice matters, nursing home cases, personal injury cases, employment law and business and estate litigation.
During my judicial career I was actively and successfully engaged in settling cases prior to trial, and, in those cases that went to trial, I conferred with the jury after the trial. Thus, I am a strong proponent of the value of mediation and have an intimate knowledge of how juries think. I am a mediator in the truest sense of the word and not just a messenger.
I have worked with many attorneys, insurance companies, and self-insured companies and have compiled a list of the same which is available upon request. I am a member of The National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals (New Jersey Chapter). I conduct mediation sessions at either a participant’s law office or by videoconference utilizing Zoom.
