My passion is resolving workplace disputes through arbitration or mediation. It's that simple.
Respect for the parties.
It's not my case; the case belongs to the parties. The parties have to live with the process and the result, and they are paying the bills.
Respect for the representatives.
The representatives have worked hard to be prepared and knowledgeable about the case. They are the ones that make everything work.
Respect for the process.
Arbitration requires order, decisiveness, and finality.
Mediation requires persistence, flexibility, and creativity.
