Testimonials

"Even having mediated cases prior to your class and participating in hundreds of mediations as an attorney representing a party, I gained much insight from your instruction/training. The interactive style allowed for greater development and understanding of the concepts presented and discussed. The class was relevant, practical, and to be honest with you, the time flew by. I cannot tell you how many seminars I have been in where I have constantly have watched the clock waiting for it to end. This training could have been a full week and I would not have grown weary based on the way you delivered the information. Great class! Thanks so much!"

"The course exceeded my expectations by 100%.  Even if you decide not to be a mediator, this course will help you navigate mediation as a participating attorney.  I’ve participated in over 50 mediations and I realized how much I didn’t know.  Every attorney who mediates without the benefit of this course is at a disadvantage."
