I do primarily family mediation and am currently on the mediation panel for the Milwaukee County Family Division. My services generally include the place for the mediation, as well as a minimum of 2 hours for the session. If more time or sessions are needed, we can schedule at mutually convenient times and dates. I believe I have an ability to listen respectfully to all sides and to keep the parties talking about the real issues that separate them. Often, people identify one complaint when actually it is something totally different that bothers them. I have been in the practice of law for 45 years and most of that time has been spent as a family lawyer. So, I believe that I bring to the table a skill set that enables me to act as a true mediator in helping people reach a place of comfort. I can't say specifically what people like about my style because I don't ask, but more than 80% of my mediations end in an agreement between the parties. I have had attorneys who represent parties who are mediating tell me afterward that they don't know how I got the parties to agree, but they do. I think the fact that I do not lean one way or the other, that I treat both parties as adults, and that I listen and make sure that all sides have as much chance as they need to articulate their concerns, are some of the qualities that litigants like in me.
