Professional Experience
Director and Vice-President
Golden Triangle Financial Services
We started this import and distribution company from nothing in 1992 and have grown it to the point where we gross over $10 million annually today. My original contribution was primarily my financial and business acumen. Today, I primarily provide overall business advice to the active management that runs the company on an ongoing basis.

Mediator and Arbitrator

Although I retired from the practice of law at the end of 2002, I really found my calling in mediation and conflict resolution. It provides me with a joy and satisfaction unlike anything I have ever experienced through labor in the past. I separate my work into two apparently irreconcilable categories: commercial and family (divorce) mediation. Actually, the techniques of each are quite complementary! Each set of skills makes me better at the other. God, I love what I do!!
Stanbury, Fishelman & Wisner
As a litigation boutique, we prosecuted complex civil litigation, including substantial class actions against such entities as America Online, Bank of America and Fen-Phen, as well as other, multi-million dollar representative actions with a high rate of success.
Principal and Manager
World News, Inc.
As manager, I oversaw the development of this company from a gross income of approximately over $80,000 per month from arrival to over $750,000 per month upon my departure from active management in 1996. I also expanded our horizons from a local Los Angeles area wholesale agency to a national and international business entity.
