Dan brings four decades of trial experience to this role as an impartial third-party to help businesses of all sizes resolve complex business disputes in a confidential setting.

Known for settling cases in which the starting gap between the parties made settlement seem like an impossible goal, Dan is frequently sought out by lawyers familiar with his experience working with multi-party mediations, his familiarity with the role of insurers in settling disputes, and his record of success.
