Counsel Comments

"I am quite picky about mediators and do not apologize for being so. But when I find an individual who has the passion, intelligence, drive, energy and willingness to listen, absorb and then make decisions and who loves the strategic and high level process that big boy mediations can be, I wish to associate my clients with such an individual when opportunities present themselves. I say the foregoing because I find that [Craig] possesses these skills and attributes and they are rare."
