Biography

I am a mediator available nationwide. My practice is limited to mediation of eminent domain disputes. I have extensive experience in both eminent domain and mediation. Over my 25 year legal career (1980-2005) I represented clients in several hundred eminent domain cases. As a part of my legal practice, I served as a mediator in many litigated civil cases.

Eminent domain disputes encompass complex issues which are expensive and time-consuming to address through traditional litigation. Mediation can provide more efficient and cost-effective resolution of these disputes. I bring a combination of subject matter expertise and professional experience to bear in assisting attorneys and their clients successfully resolve these disputes on reasonable terms, with important relationships intact, and for a fraction of the cost of traditional litigation.

In 2005 I joined the faculty of the College of Business at Missouri State University. I am a tenured full-time Associate Professor. I teach negotiation, mediation, and arbitration in business. My research also focuses on alternative dispute resolution and eminent domain. I have published a number of widely cited articles addressing mediation, arbitration, and eminent domain issues.
