Toni brings 35 years of combined professional experience as a civil litigation and employment lawyer, human resources/corporate executive and alternative dispute resolution practitioner to her current mediation practice. After years of witnessing the high cost and mostly adverse impact of prolonged litigation on those involved, Toni shifted her focus to mediation in order to provide parties with a safe, professional and positive environment to take control of their own futures and resolve conflict. Toni believes that anyone involved in conflict can benefit from a skilled mediator’s guidance through a process designed to result in a more custom tailored and cost effective result for all.
Along with her formal mediation training, Toni brings a wealth of experience and knowledge gained from representing both corporate and individual clients, problem solving as an executive in a Fortune 500 company, and mediating countless cases. It is this background that makes her exceptionally qualified to partner with you towards the resolution of your dispute.
