Disputes vary.
So do our solutions.



Employing leading edge dispute resolution methods aquired through advanced ADR study at Cornell University and The Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School, Lou utilizes evaluative and facilitative mediation processes identifying patent and tacit interests of litigants to help them reach agreement. He will meet with counsel in advance of the scheduled mediation to identify the core issues of disagreement and any “special” considerations which have been an impediment to resolution.


As an arbitrator, Lou offers subject matter expertise, over 30 years experience handling tort, commercial and employment litigation, and unquestioned integrity. Clear written opinions will set forth analysis and reasoning underlying all awards for both binding and non-binding arbitration.

Neutral Evaluations

One or all parties submit evidence and applicable law for unbiased evaluation accounting for venue and other factors affecting value. Based on an impartial review of submissions, decades of first chair trial court experience, and thorough jury verdict research, Lou will provide a privileged Advisory Opinion considering all issues and damages presented to assist parties in assessing risk.

Settlement Days

Commonly, large commercial concerns or insurance companies have multiple matters pending at any given time. Lou offers per diem rates to facilitate efficient cost-effective settlements.

The best way to learn more about our solutions is to talk to Lou directly.
