I occasionally arbitrate disputes in the public court system of the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County Pennsylvania, on a panel of three attorneys who act as arbitrators.
 
I am a lawyer licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania, since 1993.  Much of my work relates to Real Estate and Land Use issues.
 
I  have a Master's degree in Environmental Law, from Vermont Law School, 1993.
 
I have an undergraduate degree in Meteorology, so I have a good understanding of math, physics and thermodynamics, should that be useful in understanding your situation.
 
I have work experience as a classroom teacher, and radio and TV staff worker.


If your needs would be better served by having you and your fellow disputant talk out the problem with a mediator instead of litigating -  I also do that type of work.  See my listing as a Mediator on Mediation.com.
 
I am a Certified Transformative Mediator®, as recognized by the Center for the Study of Conflict Transformation.  That means I am trained to deal with relationships as well as to help you work on problems.

I mediate employer-employee workplace disputes for the Transportation Safety Administration.

I mediate federal court cases filed in the Western District Court of Pennsylvania.
 
In addition to mediating, I facilitate Victim-Offender Dialogues.  These face-face meetings are a form of restorative justice where victim and offender can avoid the impersonal experience of adjudicating a juvenile's case through court.

In addition to mediation work, I also am a facilitator for groups and individuals in outdoor settings, on what is called a "ropes" course or adventure course.  These experiential activities offer direct opportunities to learn about intra-personal and inter-personal behaviors.  I can design and facilitate such experiences for groups and individuals who want to improve the way they do things.  These experiential activities often establish a foundation for improved relationships now - so that people avoid problems later. I am currently continuing semi-annual group facilitator training through the Hero's Journey Foundation.
