Employment Mediations: conducted 40+ mediations involving employment matters including claims of discrimination, harassment, hostile work environment, and retaliation claims based on race, gender, national origin, disability, sexual harassment, and retaliation arising under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Family Medical and Family Leave Act (FMLA); collective action and wage and hour claims arising under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA); and worker’s compensation retaliation.

I am a quick study of complex legal and factual issues and use a facilitative and evaluative approach to help parties objectively assess the strengths and weaknesses of their cases and determine the best path to resolving their disputes. I approach each case with an open mind and work to connect with the parties and understand the perspectives of all sides. I arrive to each mediation fully prepared and prefer to visit separately with attorneys in advance of mediation to learn about the particular dynamics of each case.
