Having been a litigant, entrepreneur, human resources supervisor, and minor league hockey agent, I have built a practice that focuses on the people in the process. To further that mission, I obtained the below credentials and experience:
- J.D., SUNY University at Buffalo, 2001
- New York State law license, 2002
- Civil trial experience, 2002 to date
- Workers’ Compensation litigation experience, 2002 to date
- EEOC mediation training, 2005
- FINRA arbitration training and panel appointment, 2016
- ICERM mediation training, 2017
- SDNY admission, 2017
I am currently serving in a consultative status as ICERM’s Main Representative at the UN, as well as the Social Media Coordinator for WIDR. I have coached new mediators for VLA and NYU‘s Mediation Apprenticeship Program, and I recently volunteered to represent a pro se plaintiff in a employment discrimination case. In law school, my partner and I placed second in the regional Mediation Advocacy completion and went on to represent UB at the ABA‘s state-level competition. Earlier this year, I had the honor of judging the same competition at New York Law School, and I mediated a similar competition for FINRA at St. John’s Law School during the 2017 Mediation Week.
In short, I am committed to empowering people like you to resolve conflicts privately and without court intervention wherever possible–regardless of your geographic location or ability to pay. I published a book, DIY Conflict Resolution: Seven Choices and Five Actions of a Master to reach do-it-yourselfers and underserved communities, and I will continue to stand for equal rights and access to sustainable peace. Our work together won’t always be easy, but it will be worthwhile.
