His training was particularly enriching in that he dealt with conflict variables as well as human psychology/personality variables. I had time to role-play and receive insights to further hone my skills through the training. I appreciated his focus on thoughtful listening, which he not only taught but also demonstrated while watching the role-plays and providing input. I believe J.R.'s training can benefit even the most experienced mediator. I recommend him to everyone who wishes to attain basic credentials, as well as those who want to take on the challenge of attaining a new level of expertise."

It was a great pleasure to meet you and work with you on this case! I think that the settlement was a good deal for all parties certainly, it was a good deal for Mr. Sitake. I was impressed with the effectiveness of the mediation and walked out of the mediation with a much better appreciation for the process.
Both Michael Comfort and Steve Branch were satisfied with the result. Mr. Comfort was pleased with your services, so hopefully you may receive some repeat business. I certainly will recommend you for any mediation I may become involved in. I hope to be able to work with you in the future.
I would like to take this opportunity to give you some feedback on the recent mediation that you handled recently for this office. I found the process to be very professionally done and appreciate that the outcome of the mediation seemed satisfactory to both the agency and the complainant.
I'd like to add a personal note that I enjoyed meeting you and certainly see why your company is apparently very successful. If all of the mediatiors share the skills that you have acquired, I'm certain that most all of your clients would give a similar endorsement.
It was a pleasure meeting you Monday, in the mediation of my client's employment dispute with TDCJ. I was very pleased with the outcome, and felt that your insight and advice before and during the mediation contributed a great deal to our success.
My client was very pleased with the outcome. Hopefully, we will have the chance to work together again in the Future
I am very interested in how our system here could be made more efficient, get more people to settlement faster and be less of a drain on court resources. From what I have heard, the approach you worked on in Texas is certainly an improvement over how we are doing things here. As we discussed, I am here on the bench until at least the end of November, and I intend to try to participate in the discussion on how to improve our way of doing things here in the meantime from my perspective as a family court judge. I have done several of the ADR mediations recently and have observed firsthand the problems with the way it is handled here. There is clearly room for improvement."
