PROFESSIONAL INFORMATION

Biographical Notes:
design element

I was first certified as a Circuit Civil and Family Mediator in 1993 (re-certified in Circuit Civil in 2010, Family, 2011); Mediator Number 4326FRA. Certified as an Appellate Mediator, 2011.

I have been an active mediator since 1993; I have mediated over 1,900 disputes in various areas of the law, including, but not limited to, consumer/business disputes, personal injury and products liability cases, contract disputes, construction disputes, probate contests, family issues, and foreclosures. I am a Certified Residential Mortgage Foreclosure Mediation Program mediator, and I was rostered with both the Collins Center and Conant Center RMFM Programs until the Supreme Court cancelled the program.  I am rostered with the US District Court, Middle Dist. of Florida, as a bankruptcy residential mortgage foreclosure mediator. I estimate that, since 1993, between 30% and 40% of my practice has been as a mediator; since I retired from active law practice in 2012, I devote 100% of my professional life to mediation and arbitration. 

With Hal Frank Wotitzky, Esq., I formed Mediation Education, LLC in 2010 for the purpose of offering mediator training courses and continuing education courses. This Circuit Civil Mediator Certification Training Program was officially approved by the Florida Supreme Court in 2010. I am an approved Primary Trainer. My presentations in each of our Circuit Civil Training programs total approximately eleven (11) hours. We have successfully conducted several circuit civil training courses to date and presented two CLE/CME seminars to attorneys and mediators.

I have also been sole arbitrator in several cases, both court-referred non-binding arbitration and voluntary binding arbitration.

I conducted workshops at the 2011 and 2012 DRC Conferences in Orlando, both of which were well-attended and received highly favorable reviews from attendees.
