As a Florida Supreme Court-certified Circuit-Civil Mediator, I pride myself in being able to use my 25+ years of experience and knowledge in my efforts to do whatever can be done to help the parties better understand the other side's perspective, and if asked, to serve as a sounding board, to help the parties settle their disputes. As a Florida Supreme Court-qualified Arbitrator, I use the same extensive knowledge of the law to impartially apply the law to the facts.
I have focused my practice primarily on business litigation disputes and transactional matters. My peers have selected me as the Tampa-area "Lawyer of the Year" via Best Lawyers in America voting in five of the last eight years, including in multiple areas of intellectual property law, such as Copyright, Trademark, and Intellectual Property Litigation, and I am also routinely recognized in Best Lawyers in America and Superlawyers in Business Litigation. As a registered patent attorney with experience prosecuting and litigating patents, I can also add significant value to the mediation process in patent cases.
I have assisted clients and mediation participants in resolving hundreds of cases involving business disputes of all nature, including patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, non-competes, business dissolutions, professional negligence, breach of contract, products liability, auto and premises liability, and environmental claims (involving enforcement actions and between private parties). This experience allows me to effectively assist the parties in reaching a resolution that benefits both sides even more, in some instances, than payment of a settlement amount.
I am certified by the Florida Middle and Southern Districts of Florida to serve on mediation panels, and routinely mediate cases throughout the state.
I offer mediation and arbitration services in Tampa and throughout Florida, including via Zoom. My rate is $450/hour, to be split evenly between each side. Mediations involving more that two "sides" are billed at higher rates, so please contact us for our current rates.
