Appreciated the focus on tactics. That’s all I care about. All lawyers know what mediation is. Too many programs don’t give tactics enough time.
Thank you for a very informative presentation. I appreciated the quotes, stories and caselaw included in the materials.
Excellent discussion of how to be effective at mediation, and specific tips and strategies.
Great speaker, very credible. I learned a lot, especially from the fact scenario discussions.
