Review and Comment

"Phil was confronted with two intransigent parties - and emotions ran high; frankly, but for the terms of the subject contract which required mediation, neither party saw mediation as generating any kind of successful conclusion . Within 3 hours, Phil professionally and sensitively nudged the parties to settlement. He explained to each the risks of failing to settle, analyzed the damages claim, and allowed the parties to move beyond the emotion. Phil is the real deal."

"Phil is an extremely effective mediator. We asked him to mediate a case with very short notice (within a week of our deadline), and Phil took the challenging engagement, rapidly absorbed a factually complex case, and successfully mediated the case to settlement against substantial odds and despite seemingly irreconcilable gaps between the parties’ positions. I strongly recommend Phil to anyone who needs a mediator who can get the job done."

"I just wanted to reach out and thank you on a personal level for the way in which you handled the mediation on Friday. Everything went much more smoothly than I anticipated and I was very impressed with your ability to guide the parties. We had no trouble drafting a mutually acceptable Settlement Agreement, and I anticipate that everything will be filed today."

"Phil Glick has acted as a mediator in two cases of mine. I have consistently found Phil to be thoroughly prepared and immediately able to spot the key issues in a case. Phil’s over 30 years of experience practicing law shines through in his mediation skills. He is thoughtful and intelligent and absolutely driven to help parties settle their cases. Furthermore, he not only understands the legal issues, but is sensitive to the parties’ emotions and helping litigants understand the strengths and weaknesses of their cases. I enthusiastically recommend Phil without reservation."

Dear Mr. Glick:
...Your professionalism, knowledge, ability to work with people, coupled with your pure tenacity has once again ended in a resolution that is, in my professional opinion, beneficial to all parties in the litigation. I both complement and thank you for your efforts. As you know, I did not believe that the case was solvable without a trial. Your tireless efforts and creative thinking proved me wrong. Thank you. I would recommend you to any and all of my colleagues and again, commend you for your professionalism.

"Mediator Glick was brought into a hotly contested and emotionally charged case. He skillfully negotiated the legal issues and the more difficult human issues of our situation and allowed the parties to successfully resolve their dispute. Mediator Glick managed the situation and the personalities capably. I am confident in recommending that he can handle any mediation with the same thoughtfulness and professionalism that he brought to ours."

"I would like to take the time to personally thank you for the professionalism in the recent mediation.  I think you handled the case in an extremely thorough manner.  I appreciate the time and the dedication that you put in to resolve the situation in a timely and equitable fashion.  It was a pleasure working with you and I would only hope all differences could be resolved with someone like yourself in charge.  I don't know if we could have come to an agreement if it were not for your hard work.

Thank you."
