Thank you for the sensitive, professional and effective manner in which you mediated our earlier dispute. Through your efforts, not only were we able to resolve differences that had seemed invincible a week earlier, but my client achieved a peace and acceptance that seemed unobtainable for over three years. You really are very good.
I have utilized Maria’s mediation services on several occasions and she is on the top rung of my list of mediators in employment disputes. She is very effective in moving parties that are reluctant to move. She does so in a persistent, but pleasant way, without being dogmatic or off-putting. She has been successful in obtaining settlements in every one of the several matters she has mediated for me, including one in which the chances of resolution appeared very remote. She is also equally effective with litigants that are represented by counsel as well as those that are attempting to represent themselves.
Maria has served as a mediator with respect to a few recent discrimination claims in which I represented the employer. I found Maria to be thoughtful and very knowledgeable about the subject matter. Importantly, Maria was relentless in pursuing a potential resolution and used an appropriate amount of pressure to encourage the parties to continue the settlement dialogue. Maria’s extensive experience means that she has quite a few creative approaches to reaching resolution and provides helpful suggestions in analyzing liability and damages. At all times she remained professional and cordial with the parties and their counsel. Overall, I recommend Maria to serve as a mediator in any employment matter.
Maria is a smart, highly capable mediator. I have worked with her on three mediations and each time found her to have a strong understanding of the law, to be a quick study of the facts, and to work hard, with a lot of integrity, fairness, and even-handedness, to get the sides to resolution. She is held in high regard.
I had the pleasure of mediating a case with Maria at MCAD. This was a case where emotions ran high and the chance of settlement seemed very low. By the end of the day Maria’s skills as a mediator proved crucial in reaching settlement and resolving the case. I strongly recommend her mediation services!
Maria has mediated several MCAD cases between opposing counsel and me. I find her to be thorough, knowledgeable, and very helpful in bringing sides to reach compromise where possible in a fluid, professional manner. I highly recommend her.
