“You did an excellent job on a very emotional case for the plaintiffs. You are still the best I know. It is much appreciated.”
“And, again, excellent job on getting this case resolved. I have mediated many cases in my 16 years of practice, and I have used many reputable mediators. You are at the top of my list, and I look forward to working with you again in the future, I am sending an email to my fellow D B Litigators to share my experience, as they are often looking for out-spoken and strong mediators who can overcome difficult personalities and cases.”
“I hope you are well. that was an extremely difficult mediation of Friday and I truly appreciate how you handled it and guided it though to a resolution, obviously one that neither the client nor I was particularly happy about, but which needed to happen. I was one of the more challenging mediations and situations I have been in in many years.
Thanks for your support and pulling out all the stops to get it done.”
“Judge, thank you again for everything today. It took real mediator talent to make that happen.
When we reported for lunch at the Vintage Press and told the gentleman that the judge across the street sent us, he said that Howard’s a good man.
We look forward to the next time.”
“My son, the Philosophy Major, once remarked to me: ‘Every once in a while you run into a Yoda.’ Thanks for being a Yoda yesterday and for creating the setting that allowed Randy and his former partners to move forward.”
“I was massively impressed by the terrific job you did.”
“Thank you for your hard work and making that connection with my client. Makes my job better.”
“Steve just told me about yesterday’s mediation. I know there is a thin line between insanity and brilliance (see Einstein or Van Gogh). I know you are close to the line. Personally, I think you are a Grand Master. Keep up the good work.”
“Thank you again for your help on this matter in getting it resolved. Our client was very happy with using you as a mediator, which of course made us look good and she was very happy with the settlement she was able to obtain with your assistance.”
