Shel is a great mediator. I have successfully mediated two cases with him. In both instances, he was completely impartial, thoroughly prepared and had a command of the facts, the parties' positions, and other nuances that impacted the parties' approach to settlement. He listened to the clients and gave them an opportunity to voice their opinions, whether directly relevant to the merits of the case or not. His experience and knowledge of the relevant law and courts gave him great credibility with clients in explaining the risks of further litigation, when such explanation was necessary. I plan on engaging Shel again the next time I have the opportunity.
