AVVO rated 10.0/10.0 (since 2004): www.avvo.com Started practice as commercial litigator, resolving business disputes in court, on behalf of NYC and L.I. law firms. Gradually morphed more and more of my practice away from commercial litigation in the courts, and instead focused on business ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution -- Arbitration and Mediation), to the point where my practice was essentially 100% business ADR: more than 90% of my time was spent as a neutral Arbitrator and Mediator, and less than 10% as a B2B dispute resolution lawyer. I fully retired in March 2023.

Good Lead: Good leads for me were: other lawyers; accountants and other professionals; entrepreneurs; owners and key managers of small to medium-sized businesses, particularly those in industries regularly experiencing the occurrence of conflicts or disputes; parties seeking alternatives to business litigation; and people engaged in enlightened business networking such as what Gotham fosters.  NOTE:  I fully retired effective March 2023.
