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.
