Over the past 10 years, Craig, as a mediator, has earned the trust and confidence of plaintiff and defense counsel. He has earned that trust by being prepared, fair, respectful to all parties and most importantly, with Craig's help, files get resolved. For these reasons, recommending Craig as a mediator is always well received.
