“It was a 2 pm afternoon mandatory mediation. Seven parties involved. My client was facing two deductibles and threshold arguments. By 630, I was more than ready to call it a day. Jon convinced me to keep working at it,  as he saw a light at the end of the tunnel. By 830, the offer was now within the range of reasonableness and we could settle the case. Jon kept working with everyone until we got everything done.” – Senior Plaintiff Lawyer

“I thought you did an amazing job. I have told several people about the good work you did. I didn’t think Acme Insurer would settle but you didn’t give up and got it done. That will take you very far in this business.” – Senior Defence Lawyer
