  • We could not have made it through the tough impasses without your ingenuity and persuasiveness.  You kept us all engaged and the late-night calls and availability during the weekends were above and beyond your call of duty.  We have not yet fully finalized the settlement but I expect we will get it done.  We have your persistence and diplomacy to thank. I am truly grateful.
  • The settlement agreement and escrow agreement have been signed.  We are done!!!!  Thank you so much for all your help.  There is no way this could have gotten done without you.

  • I wanted to let you know that the settlement was signed a few days and the funds should be disbursed shortly.  Your work in bringing this matter to a conclusion was nothing short of miraculous. Going into this I don’t think either side believed a settlement through mediation was possible but you somehow pulled it off.  Neither side walked away feeling the victor but I believe both sides felt it was time to put the lawsuit behind them and move on.  As my partner said recently, you are one of the best mediators he has seen. I hope to have the pleasure of working with you again and if you ever need a reference please let me know.
  • This worked largely because both sides trusted you. Thanks again for a terrific job in helping get us past this problem.
  • Thank you very, very much for your herculean and patient efforts today. You did your job extremely well.
  • Thank you for both your time and efforts yesterday. Nice job. It is appreciated.
  • Thank you for getting us to the point where a resolution was possible.
  • I just wanted to update you to let you know that the Settlement Agreement has been fully executed (I won’t bore you with the details, but it took a while to get it finalized). Thank you again for your extremely able assistance in resolving this matter.
  • Your ability to ferret out the more subtle facts, assess the legal issues, persuade the parties and move them relentlessly to a satisfactory resolution is enviable. I admired your reserved style, work ethic, integrity and creativity.
  • I want to say thank you for helping the parties resolve the dispute and for making such tremendous efforts in this matter. It has been an honor and great pleasure to work with you.
