For more than three decades, I have represented consumers in class actions and in bank-related cases. Over the past decade, a major portion of my practice has involved representing individuals in residential mortgage litigation. I also regularly serve as an attorney fee expert.
I became an Oregon appellate mediator in 1997 after completing a mediation training program conducted by Willamette University professor Rich Birke. I receive one or two mediation assignments a year from the program director in a wide variety of subject areas from eminent domain to public employment law.
As a mediator, I try to provide the parties some evaluation of their strengths and weaknesses. But since my role is to help them determine if a deal can be reached, how I would represent a litigant in similar circumstances is irrelevant to how I mediate.
