Additional Information:
I was a practicing lawyer in Los Angeles from January 1956-February, 1994, handling complex business and employment law disputes as a senior partner at O'Melveny & Myers. I was a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and American College of Labor and Employment Lawyers. Also, I was involved in the forefront of the mediation dispute resolution movement as the initial Chair of the California Dispute Resolution Advisory Council (1987-1988), which adopted regulations implementing the California Dispute Resolution Programs Act establishing a statewide system of locally funded programs which provide dispute resolution services [primarily conciliation and mediation] to county residents. Since I became a full time neutral mediator in 1994, I have been President and Board of Directors member of Dispute Resolution Services, Inc., and a member of Board of Directors of the California Dispute Resolution Council. I was appointed by Governor Pete Wilson to the Milton Marks Commission on California State Government Organization and Economy, and by President George Bush to the National Commission for Employment Policy. I am a member of ABA Dispute Resolution Section, and was Chairman, ABA Labor and Employment Law Section from 1981-1982. I was a delegate to the Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference from 1984-1987 and President of the Rose Institute of State and Local Government, Claremont McKenna College from 1975-1983.
