Mediation

Representative Comments

“You and I have known each other for a great number of years and your professional acumen as a Special Master is well known and I have heard comments from many Judges who have appreciated your assistance in framing and helping to solve serious litigation issues.”

James J. McMonagle, Vorys, Sater, Seymour, and Pease LLP

“Superb work in an extremely difficult mediation.”

Avery Friedman, Avery Friedman & Assocs. LLP

“I like your candor. You have a really good read on how far to push.”

Anthony Son, Andrews Kurth LLP

“In order to improve satisfaction, the Court has reduced the Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) Federal Court Panel to 95 members (including you). Thank you on behalf of the entire Court for the valuable service you provide not only to the litigants of this district by serving as an ADR neutral, but to the Court as well.”

Chief Judge Solomon Oliver, Jr. (N.D.Ohio)

“Cohen worked with the parties to achieve prompt resolution of this difficult case. We found him to be very intelligent, even-handed, responsive, and decisive when decisions were required. He would be an excellent mediator or arbitrator for significant, high-stakes cases.”

Lynn Murray, Grippo & Elden LLC

“As a mediator, you are heads and shoulders above 95% of the other mediators, (both court and private), that I encounter in my 14 county territory. You are excellent at what you do.”

Mark Hura, Cincinnati Insurance Company

“Good listener, writes clearly, thinks clearly, hard working, patient, asks the right questions. Ran as good a Markman hearing as I’ve been to.”
