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.
