I have served as President of the Disciplinary Board of the Diocese of Maryland and as Presiding Judge of the Board's Ecclesiastical Court predecessor since 2008. By training, I am an attorney and I graduated from Columbia University School of Law in 1971 and was admitted to the District of Columbia Bar. I had a twenty-nine-year career in the federal government most of which was served in
executive level legal positions, both as an advocate and as a neutral. Since my retirement in 2000, I have worked as a self-employed labor arbitrator, hearing cases throughout the United States. I am on the arbitration rosters of the American Arbitration Association, the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, the National Mediation Board, as well as several states. I believe my broad experience in litigation on both the trial and appellate levels, well suits me to this position. My joint selection by parties to labor disputes reflects upon my reputation for fairness.
