He has completed over 200 hours of training in mediation and ADR. He has been a member of the Society of Professionals in Dispute Resolution, the American Bar Association's Section of Dispute Resolution, the Colorado Bar Association's ADR Section, and the Colorado Judicial Institutes' ADR Coalition.

He was chairman of the 1st and several Annual ADR Symposiums presented by the Colorado Bar Association.
After graduation from the University of Notre Dame and Northwestern University School of Law, he practiced law with a large Chicago firm. He served in the U.S. Army's Judge Advocate General's Corps, from 1968-1972, as a prosecutor, defense counsel, and a judge in the United States and Vietnam.
Upon leaving the Army, he joined the large regional law firm of Holland & Hart, in which he became a partner. His practice emphasized labor and employment law and civil litigation. He represented clients in administrative hearings, trials, appeals, arbitration, and negotiations. He left Holland & Hart to accept an unsolicited offer to become senior vice president of the largest bank and bank holding company in Colorado.

He has an "AV" rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the most respected source of authoritative and dependable information about members of the legal community in the United States. ("An 'AV' rating reflects an attorney who has reached the heights of professional excellence. He or she has usually practiced law for many years, and is recognized for the highest levels of skill and integrity.")
