I very highly recommend Donald Philbin. He handled a high dollar commercial mediation for me recently. It was in one of the most contentious cases I have ever handled. The mediation lasted 22 hours straight. Don persevered, remained sharp, kept the parties at the table and ultimately brought about a settlement."
