Disputes exist and can be resolved. Practical and timely intervention can navigate the path to resolution and put these in the past for you. Whether self-represented or represented, a process to address the issues will get you moving forward.
Dispute resolution can happen in person, online or through facilitated asyncronous discussion. Technology tools help along the pathway to resolution.
A trained Mediator and Arbitrator can use standard processes or custom design to ensure you are getting the resolution that suits the issues optimally.
With more than 25 years of law practice, I am able to identify the unique interests and processes that bring people to a resolution. Collaboration, pragmatism and communication are key. I started my legal practice in civil litigation, and am well aware of the access to justice issues impacting everyone with the backlogs in the Court system. There are reasons for litigating, however along the way you will want to canvass settlement.
Arbitration requires procedural fairness and expertise in the subject matter or legal area. My expertise includes personal injury, construction, professional negligence, occupier's liability, policing, MVA, non-profit governance, collections, insolvency, planning, real estate, contracts and regulatory compliance.
I obtained my Qualified Mediator and Qualified Arbitrator credentials in 2021 through ADRIC. Since then I have been helping groups and individuals with their dispute resolution needs, working towards my Chartered designations. Further certifications include Online Dispute Resolution and Med-Arb.
As a neutral Mediator and Arbitrator, cases I take on must be geographically or otherwise unrelated to the municipal corporation "The City of Calgary".
My service includes a detailed initial assessment and pre-mediation steps that build communication and collaboration between parties. I am so convinced that dispute resolution is the way to go that I will help you find another meditator or arbitrator if I am not a good fit for your dispute.
Retaining a neutral Mediator and Arbitrator starts with sharing basic information about the dispute and who is involved to check for conflicts of interest. Next determine the timeline, type of process and scheduling. After an exchange of information and pre-meetings, your dispute resolution event occurs.
