Beginning Quotation Mark I have used Chris Blank for 2 bankruptcy mediation matters in the past year. Chris has all the qualities I look for in a mediator. He concisely describes the ground rules to both sides, makes the parties and lawyers feel at ease, and understands that parties sometimes need to vent their emotions to facilitate the negotiations. He is thorough, patient, really listens and offers his opinions (without being overbearing) as to the pros and cons of each side, taking into account the costs of litigation, likelihood of success at trial and chances of recovery on judgment.
Chris knows the law, reads the mediation briefs and is interested gaining the color and nuances of a case which come to light in speaking with the parties and counsel. Lastly, he really cares about reaching a deal, works to get the parties to come to a consensus and is willing to go the extra mile get the matter resolved. Highly recommended.
