Don Philbin in Texas is recommended for his “exceptional” mediation skills and depth of knowledge of the mediation process. One client says of him, “His grasp of the forces that drive a successful mediation is always spot on. There is not a mediator working today that I would trust more in bringing a case to resolution.”
Don Philbin is a very quick study. He boils a case down to the important issues rapidly and he doesn’t get distracted by non-issues.
Don is a mediator that I can trust to have the knowledge and insight to settle any kind of case from family law to complex commercial matters. His pragmatic approach helps to steer parties into a position to make sensible decisions.
Don has helped to settle cases with some of the most difficult clients. His business-sense helps clients understand the long-term and unseen costs of litigation to a business versus pursuing a matter on principal.
Don’s track record of success in those mediations is beyond compare. He is extremely hardworking, patient, and whip smart. In each case Don assisted the parties to reach a settlement. I highly recommend him as a mediator.
Don spends his time efficiently with each side and has the intuition to know just where the “give and takes” are in each case. He has an extensive legal background, but unlike many of his competitors, he also has an extensive business background. While the lawyers are thinking like lawyers, Don often comes up with creative solutions based on his multidimensional expertise.
Don has a thoughtful and deliberate approach to mediation. Far more than a “message carrier,” Don helps parties look for solutions to their disputes that may not have to come to their minds.
Outstanding presentation. Lots of useful information provided in an entertaining package.
Best and most entertaining statistical analysis I’ve ever seen.
Excellent and, as usual, just plain fun!
A Siskel and Ebert 4-star review!
