I am a retired judge with over four decades of experience helping parties achieve practical and effective solutions to their most challenging disputes.  First as a Crown Prosecutor, later as a litigation partner with one of Canada’s premier law firms, and finally, for over twenty years as a trial judge of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.  By drawing on the unique perspectives and experiences gained at each stage of my career, I now help parties untangle the issues that separate them, restore and rebuild important relationships, and achieve practical, cost-effective resolutions to a broad range of commercial, civil, personal injury, employment, real estate, and personal matters.

My experience at the Bar and on the Bench is further complemented by additional training, accreditation, and significant experience as both a mediator and adjudicator. In my twenty-two years as an Ontario Superior Court trial judge, I have conducted over two thousand judicial settlement and mediation conferences in all civil and commercial areas. I am a very experienced mediator having received the Chartered Mediator designation (C.Med) from the Alternative Dispute Resolution Institute of Canada “ADRIC” in 2019. In addition, I have also extensively taught mediation to both judges and lawyers, most recently in a one-week 2021 Osgoode Professional LLM course entitled “ Mediation Advocacy” designed by Mr. Frank Gomberg and myself.
