Paul D. Reingold
Very professional but also informal and comfortable. The mediator took the time to really get to know the parties and to understand where both sides were coming from, and what obstacles needed to be overcome to reach a settlement. The mediator tried to help each side understand the other side's position, which reduced the tension and made the parties more open to compromise. The mediator also got a good sense of the strengths and weaknesses of both sides cases, as well as their ability to pay, what kind of witnesses they would make at trial, and what proofs they had or were lacking.
