He asks the right questions necessary to re-frame issues, uncover difficulties, and help clients more objectively understand the strengths and weaknesses of both their own and the opposition’s cases. He respects the attorney’s role in representing his or her clients, and he strictly upholds the confidences of both attorney and client.
Tom stresses honesty, integrity and open communication during the entire process of mediation. Clients invariably trust him to be unfailingly fair and unbiased, working with both sides toward successful conclusion of even the most complicated and contentious negotiations.
