- Attorney on a Commercial case
"Thank you for all your hard work on this matter, Rachel. I’ve been disappointed with mediators lately with how detached they are with the substantive portion of cases. Most mediators only want to talk numbers and don’t have a true understanding of the merits. You not only understand the issues but are also very hands on with the settlement. You should teach courses to mediators and share your own war stories. "
