Negotiation is a private, confidential and voluntary process in which clients are in control of both the process and the outcome. I offer this Service as a facilitated dispute resolution process that includes dispute resolution analysis as part of the preparation and process. I facilitate clients in their effort to resolve their dispute (or to make a decision or deal) by guiding them through a customized preparation and negotiation process in an informal role (versus my formal role as Mediator in my Mediation Service in which I am in control of the process while clients are in control of the outcome).

As in my other Services, my Negotiation Service does not create an attorney-client or professional relationship. During Negotiation, I provide neither legal, financial, therapeutic or other professional advice nor legal analysis with respect to clients’ legal positions or rights. Clients should neither act nor refrain from acting on the basis of Negotiation without seeking the appropriate legal or other professional advice on the particular facts and circumstances of their dispute and from an attorney or other professional licensed in their state or country. 

My Negotiation Service is provided via Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) to enable clients remote online access and the efficiency and effectiveness that can bring to resolving their dispute or making a decision or deal through a professional process involving significant preparation and sophisticated platforms.

For the privacy, security and benefit of my clients, I provide them the same practice management, communications, and signing platforms trusted by lawyers and other professionals to manage their practice and the same ODR platforms trusted by courts, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and alternative dispute resolution professionals to resolve many case and dispute types.

Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.
