Brett Olander is a superior mediator
Brett just finished acting as the mediator for me in a complex personal injury matter in which I represented the injured party. His demeanor and his superior work ethic and intellect were instrumental in successfully resolving the case. I will definitely use Brett's services again in future mediations and I would recommend him to anyone.
