You Need Me To Round Out Your Employment Mediation and
Case Support Shortlist, Because I’m . . .

#1: An expert at handling diversity-related emotions and drama. Many logic-driven mediators have great difficulty in this area, and some don’t even know it.

#2: Exceptional at getting faster resolutions.  My business and personal life experiences provide a unique understanding of the real motivators on both sides. And this understanding helps me formulate very personalized Reality Checks that push just the right buttons at just the right time.

#3:  Able to identify hidden non-monetary needs.  It’s not always the money.  I’m really good at uncovering the deeper racial/cultural, emotional, and ADA concerns that force irrational behavior. Less insightful mediators tend to overlook these concerns, or they are at a loss when they can’t overlook.

#4:  A proven winner with a long track record.  For the past 16 years, I have successfully mediated hundreds of cases for the EEOC, Los Angeles Superior Court, U.S. Postal Service, U.S. Transportation Security Administration, and in my private practice.

#5: Fully aware of your needs.  As a trainer for the Los Angeles County Bar Association’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Program for the past 15 years, I’ve gained invaluable insight into the specific concerns and preferences of private practice attorneys, corporate counsels, and other conflict managers regarding all facets of mediation.

#6:  An employment mediation specialist.  I’m not a generalist, unlike so many other mediators. From day-one, workplace issues have been the singular focus of my practice. Some say this gives me an undeniable edge when it comes to mediating these types of cases.

#7: Available also for Case Support.  I’m not only a mediator. As a case support provider, you can entrust me with those difficult client conversations that would be better understood coming directly from me, and not you.

#8: A Member of the American Arbitration Association’s National Mediation Panel.  For that matter, I am one of relatively few non-attorneys to hold that prestige honor.

#9: More Than a “One-Trick Pony”.  There are three distinct styles of mediation: Directive/Evaluative, Facilitative, and Transformative. Each style has its own strengths and weaknesses. Most mediators are limited to one, maybe two styles. I have mastery in all three styles and can employ the strengths of each as the need arise.

#10: Highly skilled with ADA cases.  Parties with disabilities often require special attention that most mediators have not been specifically trained to provide. Having spent 6 years as Assistant Director and Lead Mediator for the Disability Mediation Center at Loyola Law School prepared me to work successfully with all types of disabilities . . . be they cognitive or physical . . . visible or invisible.

There you have it. .  Ten very solid reasons. And, there are many more that contribute to my uniqueness among employment mediators and organizational conflict consultants.
