Personal style and feedback
David has authority when dealing with procedural issues but he is not authoritarian. Parties find it easy to relax with him. He likes to work hard for agreement and does not let the grass grow under his feet.
“I would characterise the mediator’s style as relaxed, informal, sensible and encouraging”
“David was just right. He had a strong personable manner. He had a clear grasp of the issues of the case. He was very good at managing time and stuck to the time schedule. We finished right on time. I would use him again.”
“He was very approachable, used plain language to the litigant in person and gave helpful time warnings”
“I was happy with him. I think he was very persuasive making sure the parties will keep the goal of settlement in mind. He was quite clear and made sure everyone would understand the benefits of agreement. I can’t think of anything else he could have done better. I wouldn’t have any problem using him again.”
“I would like to thank David for his unflappability, humour and very down-to-earthness which was exactly what was needed in this mediation”
