I’ve developed a way to cut through the mess and resolve civil disputes in a more efficient, less costly manner.
NDR, Neutral-Driven Resolution, is a method I developed after a 40-year career in business and law to take the stress, headaches, and high cost out of settling business and other disputes. I’ve laid out a clear and compelling case for why and how anyone can use the NDR process to get real justice in resolving disputes—without expensive legal battles.
Read this book and join me in spreading the word about this simple and practical path to civil justice—without the stress, distractions, and absurd cost of our current system.

“During my forty years as a lawyer, I’ve experienced first-hand the impact of a legal system that’s structured to work for the big and wealthy, but not for the average person with a simple dispute. Change is necessary, and Just Right provides an important step in that direction. Insightful, clear, and innovative, the solutions offered in Just Right are what attorneys and individuals need to move beyond the current sclerotic system. It should be mandatory reading for everyone in the legal system and for anyone who may be faced with a dispute or legal situation.”
