Arbitration is a form of ADR, or alternative dispute resolution, in which the parties proceed to resolve their dispute privately. It is generally a process that results in a binding decision by the arbitrator, which may be confirmed through the court and ultimately enforced as a judgment. An arbitration proceeding may take place before any action in court and constitutes a less formal, less costly, and quicker resolution process. An appeal of an arbitration award is generally subject to limited court review.
As a judge, I handled and resolved many non-jury civil cases of all sorts over the years; as a lawyer, I served as an arbitrator dealing with a range of matters, and, of course, as counsel for a party.
I look forward to working with you to achieve a just resolution of the case you present. I will work with you through a telephonic structuring conference, as well as through other needed communications, to address all pre-hearing issues, including discovery matters. I will always proceed with the goal of keeping the proceedings quick, efficient, and as inexpensive as possible.
