  • Matthew F. Davis

    I have only known Fred as a mediator. Our case was never going to settle. The only thing that we could agree to was Fred as the mediator. And we didn't settle. At the end of the day, we were miles apart. But Fred just wouldn't give up. He worked with both sides to get them re-evaluate their risks and then brokered a settlement that he crafted himself. In complex or difficult cases, a mediator like Fred is essential. He took possession of the case and was not going to let go until he exhausted the possibilities. But for his fine work, my client would now be still celebrating an unlikely win or out of business. Instead, my client is still in business, and the case is just a memory. What a superlative job.
