Excerpts From Notes of Appreciation From Mediation and Arbitration Clients
"I have a great deal of admiration for Mr. Weil, primarily because of his ability to logically think out solutions to problems and in particular see the merits of opposing points of view. I don't know anybody any better at arriving at a balanced view of a problem than Mr. Weil...His ability to understand the other side of an issue has made him in my judgment an exceptionally insightful individual."
"Not only was I satisfied with the outcome, but, most importantly my client was satisfied with the outcome...Mr. Weil, your method and approach to mediation is right on target and is very effective."
"You were instrumental in negotiating with success an agreeable outcome for both parties. Without your assistance, the litigation process would have commenced. This much delayed letter shall serve as a "thank you" for your time and effort in resolving our differences."
“Mediator . . . persistent, proactive.”
“Rick Weil did a great job – very skillful.”
“I want to express our appreciation for your skillful handling of the Early Neutral Evaluation session…With your guidance, the parties were able to settle the matter expeditiously.”
Rick “got everybody involved from two separate (but effectively dependent) litigations.”
"Mr. Weil was the sole, court appointed arbitrator on a case on which I was involved. He handled himself, and the arbitration according to the highest professional standards. The case was particularly difficult, because the party on the other side was representing himself, and Mr. Weil took extraordinary steps to insure that the litigant understood the procedures and protocol involved...Let me say unequivocally, that I am not only impressed with his knowledge and acumen on a professional level, but he is quite simply, a very nice person. He seems to care about what he is doing, genuinely seems concerned about concepts of justice and fairness, and has all the qualities and attributes I think are needed to be an excellent mediator/arbitrator. He is fair, diligent and compassionate.”
“Your good nature, good humor and overall friendly style are singularly well-adapted to mediation. You have an ability to put people at ease that removes unproductive attitudinal barriers that are so often the critical obstacles to settlement…What was at least equally valuable, and what may be unique to you, is that you see your role as not just mediating between the parties but also, if more subtly, between the people on each side. I think you see that as an important building block, I think you’re right, and I’m grateful for that perception.”
