Working Arrangements

As a sole practitioner, my overhead is low with substantial savings passed on to clients. I am accustomed to working within client budgets and working arrangements crafted to suit client and matter needs. While I reside in Falls Church, VA, located in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area, I am free to travel.

For all other cases, I employ a flexible rate schedule, usually in the $100-300 per hour range, to reflect the character of the dispute. Hourly rate or lump sum billing arrangements are possible. Unless otherwise agreed, all costs are shared equally among the participating parties.

Individual, ad hoc group or association clients are welcome.

Solo or partnering efforts to suit the situation are possible. For example, a typical mediation, group facilitation or consensus building process usually requires only one professional although depending on the number of participants and the nature of the issues, co-facilitation may be necessary. In contrast, a restorative justice conference usually involves a pair of co-facilitators.

While I prefer in-person conflict resolution settings, I am increasingly using remote sessions on Zoom or comparable platforms often because of the parties locations or health and security situations like the 2020 commenced Covid situation.

Likewise, I am accustomed to solo or collaborative training and consensus building assignments.

I have good working relationships with many law firms and other dispute resolution practitioners, which offers the possibility of cost-effective partnering and strategic alliances with company staff, outside counsel or consultants on matters requiring a broad resource base.

Finally, I offer quick turnaround and sensitivity to tight deadlines. References are available upon request.
