Testimonials from our clients offer a way for you to determine how our services may benefit you.
Arbitration "I have been extremely impressed by Mr. Clymer's abilities both as an arbitrator and a mediator. Mr. Clymer served as an arbitrator in a residential real estate dispute. This was a highly emotional case, which Mr. Clymer handled with complete professionalism. Despite the fact that the parties came to arbitration with high emotions, Mr. Clymer kept the testimony well in hand, provided the parties a complete opportunity to present all evidence they desired, and promptly issued a thorough, well-reasoned arbitration award." "I highly recommend Mr. Clymer's services as a mediator or arbitrator." -Scott Gelman, Esq., Gelman & Norberg, LLC.
FAMILY LAW: "Thank you for your patience, persistence, professionalism and positive attitude. The first mediator we tried could not have gotten this case settled." -P.G., Husband, at successful conclusion of challenging divorce mediation.
"My client felt that the way you explained things in the mediation, and how you conducted the mediation was absolutely first rate". H.O., Esq.
COMMERCIAL DISPUTE: "When the going gets tough, call Steve Clymer!" - Robert Bruce, Lawlis and Bruce, LLC, Denver.
PERSONAL INJURY CASE. . . BEFORE: "Defense counsel and I agree on one thing--this case will not settle in mediation. Each of us separately petitioned the Court to exempt us from the mediation requirement, but the Court nevertheless ordered us to be here today." -M.H., Esq., solo practitioner, at beginning of personal injury mediation. . . . AFTER: "Well, I am impressed . . . I thought this case was unresolvable. Thank you for your help in getting this matter resolved. My clients express their appreciation." -M.H., Esq., at successful conclusion of mediation session in the same case.
"I am writing to express my appreciation for your effective work as a mediator in the three cases that we have had together. None of the cases settled early or easily. All had the potential to go to trial and beyond. In all three, you managed to wrestle the lawyers and litigants to settlements that were essentially fair.
You prepared thoroughly for each case and succeeded in sizing up the big picture-the potential risks and benefits to the parties. You identified the pressure points for each of the parties and worked these points, without overworking them. In addition to earning the respect of the lawyers, you earned the respect and trust of the clients, which in at least two of the cases was no mean feat.
None of the three cases settled during the scheduled mediation session. They all had to be nursed for weeks or months afterward. You did this on all three cases, diligently checking with the lawyers to see if the gap could be narrowed further. Many mediators these days will not take the time to stay with the case.
Please feel free to use me as a reference for anyone considering your services in the future."
-David J. Driscoll, Esq., of Garlin Driscoll & Murray, LLP (one personal injury case and two hi-tech communications cases)
"It was a pleasure working with you, and we appreciate your hard work in getting a difficult situation resolved" - B.B., Esq. of Hall & Evans, LLC. (consumer credit case)
"We were very pleased with the mediation which we attended today. In particular, I wanted to compliment Steve Clymer as a mediator. He is fair and pleasant to deal with, and our client felt very comfortable with him, which I think helped the matter settle more quickly that it otherwise would have. I also spoke with opposing counsel, who asked that I pass on his compliments regarding Mr. Clymer as well." -P.G., Esq., of Kutak Rock LLP (real estate dispute).
"The parties attended a mediation session with Steven Clymer. As a result of that mediation session, including Mr. Clymer's skills, the parties were able to reach a settlement in this case." -K.E., Esq., of Hogan & Hartson LLP. From court-filed document, "Certificate of Completion of ADR" (breach of contract).
Facilitation "Dear Steve: Thank you for all your help!! The neighborhood meetings were a huge success because of your help. The approval of the Planning Board is due in part to all of your ideas, suggestions and support." -S.G., Housing Planner for local quasi-governmental agency.
"Thank you Steve . . . Very rich meeting, beautifully conducted" - M.M., participant at Facilitation for Faculty, Staff, Parents, and Students at local high school.
. . . What kind of job did Mr. Clymer do in facilitating the Stakeholders' Meeting?
