Additional information: I do not have a set style of mediation for all cases. I try to assess the individual needs of each case and to tailor the mediation process to fit those needs. In the interest of efficiency, I ask that the parties provide me with briefs and other information in advance, so that I understand the issues before the mediation starts. I also request that the attorneys explain the process beforehand so that I do not have to spend the parties' funds to do this. I try diligently to understand the positions of the parties and the relevant facts, and to treat all parties and attorneys respectfully. However, I try to keep control of the process, and I am not afraid to express opinions or to be assertive
