Comments from Counsel, Jurors, & Parties


  • My client and I very much appreciate your wisdom, your legal expertise, and your patience in the way you facilitated settlement among several parties after many hours of mediation. I heard other parties expressing appreciation for you, too. It was a difficult mix of disputes. You succeeded in helping all involved to close the litigation peacefully with benefits for each of the parties. [Complex 7 figure probate matter]

  • I just wanted to follow-up with you and say, thank you. Due to the nature of my practice, I’ve participated in hundreds of mediations over the past 16 years. I’ve regularly used some of the best mediators in this state and mediators out of state and various mediators appointed by government agencies.  I know this was a small case but the emotions were high and you did your job at a level I have rarely seen. So, thank you. A job well done!

  • We thank you for your professionalism, counsel, and compassionate understanding. The case would not have settled as it did . . . without your help. [7 figure employment claim]

  • I really appreciate your working so hard to get these parties together. It was truly above and beyond.  Our office has had this case a long time and we are all very pleased to have the major issues resolved.

  • My client appreciated the way you handled this case—a matter which has been extremely painful for him. But for you efforts, and influence, I believe this matter would not have settled, and my client would have been in a much worse position. I don't think any resolution would have been reached without your expertise and kindness. [8 figure estate matter]

  • Thank you again for your Herculean efforts in a uniquely difficult matter.  I did not think it would happen.  If you need a mediation referral, I would be happy to serve as one.  I also appreciate your kind words and your overall demeanor.  You did a lot to help us keep [our client] cool, calm, and collected. [8 figure top-management employment dispute]

  • Judge, thanks for your help. I appreciate your concern and your insight. An agreement would not have been reached without your involvement.

  • Thank you very much for your efforts last week.  You did a masterful job at navigating through some strong emotions and non-economic considerations to bring us to a settlement I thought unlikely.  I greatly appreciate your continued efforts and patience throughout the day and into the evening. I have shared my positive experience with others here at my firm and do and will whole-heartedly recommend you to others.  I look forward to the opportunity to work with you again in the future.

  • I did not think we would find a deal. Any other mediator would have failed and/or given up.

  • Judge – thanks for hanging in there with us today.  You played a pivotal role in getting the deal done. 

  • Thank you for assisting the parties in successfully resolving the above-referenced matter. We appreciate your skills and efforts in helping to facilitate a resolution.

  • I had very little hope of this matter being settled and was grateful for your help. Your experience and counsel did the trick. Thank you.

  • I know that your knowledge, your professionalism and your compassion had a great deal to do with the success of this mediation. I just wanted to say thank you.

  • I felt that you were a great facilitator of the proceedings and did all you could to move things along in a fair and efficient manner.
