Terrific Mediator
I have known Rand Hoch for over 16 years. I have used him as a Private Mediator when I handled defense cases for 3 years and claimant's cases for the past 13 years. He always does a great job explaining the law to the claimants. He is a former Judge of Compensation Claims so he has extensive experience with trials. He relates well with claimants. He works hard and will stay late if necessary to help the parties reach a resolution. I highly recommend Rand Hoch as a Mediator.

Rand Hoch 2015 Review
Rand was so very helpful to me in my attempt to get my homestead issues resolved. He is truly well connected and knowledgeable in local legal processes. He guided me towards a course of action that resulted in a quick, not litigious outcome. I would suggest him as a consultant or mediator who is well connected and knowledgeable, and with whom you will feel like you are being well represented by a trusted advisor.

Brilliant lawyer former Judge who can settle cases
Rand Hock is a former Judge who brings knowledge, skill and tenacity to any mediation. He understands and explains the flaws in each side of the litigation. He does an amazing job helping each side make the right decisions so that the case can be fairly resolved.
