Alan did a great job of bringing the parties together to settle a matter that I did not believe would settle.

Alan understood the legal issues from the get-go which allowed the parties to focus on resolving the matter instead of educating the mediator.

Alan put my client at ease and his calm demeanor and patience were instrumental in bringing about the settlement.

Alan brought up issues that I had not even focused upon which helped bring the parties together.

Alan blends legal insight with a practical business approach which my business clients appreciate.

I would definitely use Alan again particularly for my most difficult mediations.
