  • Alan Stanford Fanger

    I recently had the opportunity to use Andrea as a mediator in a home improvement contractor v. owner case. She was fair, insightful, had a thorough understanding of the factual and legal issues, and earned the trust of the parties and counsel. She also has a way of using humor to get the parties to ease their tension, which was quite necessary in that case. I highly recommend as a mediator or arbitrator.
