- Expedited proceedings available.
I am mindful and respectful of the great responsibility that comes with serving as your arbitrator. I have learned much as an advocate and arbitrator over the past several decades. Accordingly, the following principles guide my approach: first, the parties, and their counsel, are to be afforded broad rights to present their case; second, the arbitration process is defined by the unique arbitration agreement of the parties, along with essential elements of due process; and third, arbitration is intended as a prompt, cost-effective alternative to traditional litigation and everyone in the process needs to honor and work towards that end.
As your arbitrator I commit to the following:
- I will promptly and fairly handle all discovery issues with a minimum of amount of paperwork.
- I will set a realistic schedule for the handling and hearing of the case.
- I will provide a thorough and thoughtful Opinion and Award based on admissible evidence and applicable law.
Effective February 1, 2022
