I endorse this lawyer's work. Having known Mr. Wisner for almost 45 years, I can attest not only to his legal acumen, analytical ability and creativity, but equally important, to his acute perceptions of people and situations. He sees beneath much that is overt, to the premises, sources and causes of positions and problems. He has a very unusual combination of empathy, insight and shrewdness that lead him to solutions most others would never dream of, much less seek to apply. His enormously varied and successful background enable him to grasp widely diverse subject areas and personalities quickly. While all of these traits made him an excellent trial and transactional lawyer, they make him a remarkable mediator. I could not recommend anyone more highly than Mr. Wisner.
