    Sher managed the people and the process quite adeptly Although the case did not settle his efforts broke difficult ground for future discussions and also provided a better understanding of issues of fact law and the parties themselves It is the true mark of an exceptional mediator when the parties although the did not settle their dispute nonetheless considered the time well spent Attorney Client Attorney Lubna Jahangiri Law Offices of Lubna Jahangiri San Ramon CA Dispute Type Real Estate Submitted 5 Nov 09 Malcolm Sher is an effective mediator Initially my clients were skeptical about mediation and did not expect any results It took eight and a half hours but the case settled The case was very difficult partly because of the high level of emotions and feelings of betrayal on each side Mr Sher was able to help the parties move beyond their anger and look at the practical side of trying the case Attorney Client Attorney B Scott Levine Goodman Levine LLP Oakland Dispute Type Real Estate Submitted 1 Oct 07 I would like to thank you for your superb work as mediator in helping to resolve this matter Without your persistence keen understanding of the law and ready grasp of the facts I have no doubt that there would not have been a resolution at this early stage In my experience you are one of the most effective mediators I have had the pleasure of working with in 25 years of civil litigation practice Attorney Client Attorney Gina Dashman Boer Stein Rudser Cohen Magid LLP Oakland CA Dispute Type Real Estate Submitted 7 Aug 07 You mediated a complicated real estate dispute involving an unsophisticated real estate investor legally sophisticated real estate investors and a broker You were able to get to the heart of the dispute quickly and facilitate settlement in one day Your ability to communicate effectively with these divergent groups was instrumental to the successful outcome Attorney Client Attorney Glen L Moss Moss Murphy Hayward California Dispute Type Real Estate Submitted 29 Jun 07 I wish to thank you for your hard work which resulted in the settlement of the dispute I particularly appreciated your call before the mediation This allowed counsel to privately advise you of the impediments to settlement that might be difficult to express during the mediation I also share your view that providing food for everyone assists in creating an atmosphere for settlement Your willingness to keep at the process until 9 00 p m also insured the parties would reach an agreement Attorney Client Attorney Barbara Duval Jewell Gagen McCoy McMahon Armstrong Danville Dispute Type Real Estate Submitted 18 Apr 06 I recently represented the buyer in a claim for damages arising from purchase of a home in northern California There were four other parties to the dispute Mr Sher mediated the case to resolution quickly and efficiently I am certain his command of the legal standard of care and insurance issues plus his ability to work well
