“I strongly recommend Steve as a mediator. Recently, he mediated a case that I thought was a difficult one to resolve. I am pleased to report we settled but I know this could not have been done without him as a mediator. In fact lately I have not wanted to go to mediation as mediation has not worked. I know he worked hard to get this one settled and his hard work paid off. “
