How to Begin
You will need to have an attorney's expert
assistance when deciding whether to use arbitration as well as when and how to
proceed. The unique aspects of your situation will have to be carefully
considered. You will consider the various forms of arbitration and select the
most appropriate way to begin the process.
An attorney can help you
weigh the arbitration option as part of an overall plan for approaching a
dispute which has already arisen. An attorney can also assist you in selecting
arbitration as an alternative for the handling of possible future disputes;
for example, you may wish to write arbitration clauses into contracts.
The information is usually presented at a
single meeting, which is held at a mutually- convenient time and place. The
parties may also decide to meet more than once, or to present materials in
writing or by conference call, or through a combination of these.
The decision is rendered soon after all the
materials have been presented by the parties involved. With your attorney's
help, you can determine how to proceed once the decision has been
Independent Arbitration Services
I am a completely independent mediator and arbitrator, not connected with any organization, other firms or attorneys. In my opinion, this independence helps assure entirely neutral treatment, privacy, and economical and efficient administration.
Beginning in 1986, my law practice has included arbitration and mediation with private parties, for the courts, and under auspices of organizations administering arbitration programs. My education has included special training in arbitration and mediation through the Hennepin County courts, Minnesota Association of Mediators, American Arbitration Association, Society of Professionals in Dispute Resolution, Minnesota State Bar Association, and the Erickson Mediation Institute. I previously served on bar association committees involved with alternative dispute resolution (mediation and arbitration) and lawyer professionalism.
I serve on the arbitrator panel of the American Arbitration Association, and have arbitrated matters through the Fourth Judicial District (Hennepin County) Alternative Dispute Resolution program. I am also a volunteer mediator of attorney-client fee disputes through the Seventh District Bar Association and have been a frequent arbitrator of No-fault automobile insurance disputes involving insurance companies and insured parties.
My education, work, and litigation background include construction and engineering, injuries and medical issues, real estate, professional malpractice and a wide variety of insurance claims.
I am a Qualified Neutral under Minnesota Court Rule 114 for Mediation and Arbitration.
