I recently completed my second successful mediation in a row with Judge Rau. She is refreshingly relentless in her resolve to settle her cases. More than two dozen phone calls and emails after we left the mediation and she settled our case to the satisfaction of all parties. We will of course continue to use her on our most complicated and high value cases. She is a gifted, compassionate and balanced mediator. She has transitioned seamlessly from the bench to private mediation.

Judge Rau knew from the start which tact would most effectively resolve the case, and she was right. She was able to establish a feeling of trust amongst all parties involved and the virtual platform was seamless. I will no doubt use Resonate for future mediations and highly recommend others do the same.

It was a pleasure to work with you.  I have done remote depositions but not mediation.  I was pleasantly surprised how well the technology of the mediation went yesterday.  With 12 participants, the task was not easy.  … I spoke with several counsel in other matters today and advised how well yesterday went and that I would recommend you for future mediations.

The … matter was certainly not an easy one.   I really appreciate all of your efforts working (for over 12 hours on Zoom!) to get this case done.  That was quite a feat!  I truly believe we were able to reach the global settlement as a direct result of your hard work and determination.  I also hope you know how much [our client] enjoyed your comments and wisdom on the strengths and weaknesses of the case and what happens when you let a jury decide your fate.  Hearing from a judge with your demeanor and experience helped reinforce many of the key issues and I believe it helped [our client] make decisions with confidence.

I would classify this as one of the best mediation experiences I have had in my career.  As a trained mediator myself, I paid particular attention to details such as how the mediator spoke to my client (and his spouse); how she changed tone and demeanor as dictated by the situation; how she pressed on even when it seemed like no deal would happen.  I was very pleased with the entire mediation session. … When we felt like hope was lost, Judge Rau brought us back from the brink and reasoned with us in a most effective way. This helped to get the case resolved. I highly recommend Judge Rau and Resonate Mediation.  Our case was complex with multiple non-monetary issues that Judge Rau helped us navigate. If it was not for experience and wisdom we would have ended at impasse. … I plan to use Judge Rau for my next mediation.
