Trial Experience

During the course of my practice I have tried dozens of jury trials to verdict and tried in excess of 2500 non-jury trials. As the Courts mandate that all dissolution of marriage cases be mediated prior to trial, I have extensive mediation experience and I am skilled in negotiation. I have a unique perspective on that process as I am also a Supreme Court certified Family Law Mediator and a Supreme Court certified Circuit Civil Mediator.
