“We hired Jim as mediator in a contentious and complicated fraudulent conveyance action brought by my client, a Chapter 7 Trustee, against several parties.  Going into the mediation, Jim did an extraordinary job of familiarizing himself with the facts, interviewing the players, and understanding their goals.  At mediation Jim was professional, candid, and pragmatic.  It was clear that he had a firm grasp of the facts and legal issues, and he quickly spotted strengths and weaknesses of both sides and common ground to explore meaningful settlement.  I do not hesitate to conclude that Jim’s preparation, diligence, and insights were the primary factors that drove a favorable settlement.  I wholeheartedly endorse Jim and will be hiring him again.”
