At the heart of arbitration is the expectation that the arbitrator you select will have integrity, be impartial, follow the rules and conduct the arbitration with skill and fairness.

Arbitration is the determination of a controversy by a person chosen by the parties. It is designed as a less complicated, less expensive and faster process for resolving disputes. It promises a reasoned outcome that properly considers the law, the agreement to arbitrate and the evidence presented at the arbitration.

I have been selected to arbitrate a wide variety of claims, including employment and labor law, securities law and contract disputes. see: https://casetext.com/case/martens-v-smith-barney-inc  I have a reputation for being unbiased and able to conduct a fair and efficient hearing. I am also capable of weighing competing points of view and writing decisions that are clear and well reasoned. I am active with FINRA as an arbitrator qualified to serve as Chair Person.
