Conflicts.
Disputes. Arguments.
Stand-offs. Hostilities. Disagreements.
By whatever name, a choice can be made: manage it through proven methods of negotiation and settlement
or let it escalate.


After 12 years on the D.C. Superior Court's trial bench and eight years as chief legal counsel to the District's City Council, I now endeavor to help individuals and organizations engage in the process of mending and healing. MizeADR is shorthand for my commitment to provide fair, impartial and efficient dispute resolution services.

I have tasted the successes of alternative dispute resolution ("ADR"). I've seen how it works. Why it works. When it works.
And who benefits? Everyone.
