Biography Between 1996 and approximately 2000, my practice was primarily devoted to family law cases. Beginning approximately in 2001, I began mediating cases, primarily family law cases involving equitable distribution, alimony, child custody and child support. After becoming certified in Family Law mediation in 2003, the number of cases I mediated began to substantially increase. I became certified in Superior Court mediations in 2005, and have successfully mediated Superior Court cases, although the majority of cases I mediate have continued to be in the area of Family Law.

I currently spend aproximately one-half of my time mediating and one-half litigating and practicing law. The majority of cases I mediate involve pending litigation but a strong plurality involve cases in which no legal action is pending and where the parties hope to avoid litigation and view ADR as a much more viable alternative. I have mediated numerous cases with multiple counsel, CPAs and other experts present, along with the parties, and I have mediated a growing significant number of cases with just the parties present. I am totally comfortable in either setting.

Since approximately 2000, I have successfully mediated approximately 1000 cases, some involving complex issues regarding business valuations and multiple corporations and LLCs and other complicated financial issues.

I have been continuously listed in Best Lawyers in America as a family law practitioner since 2007 and as both a family law practitioner and family law mediator since 2008.  I have been continuously listed in North Carolina Super Lawyers as a family law practitioner since 2007.
