In a Dram Shop case with a very complex liability picture, Judge Rau was a godsend. She brought her considerable experience to bear in an “unsettleable” case. It was her command of the case and her continued optimism which allowed all parties to trust in the end result. Judge Rau is the best.
Remote mediation: plaintiff’s attorney – dram shop case
Judge Rau recently served as our mediator on a factually intense PA Dram Shop claim which involved a catastrophic injury. The parties did not have high expectations that the claim would settle, but agreed to mediate. Judge Rau was very effective in terms of her communicating with an extremely volatile Claimant. Judge Rau also provided very worthwhile input regarding case value based upon her experience on the bench and her presiding over verdicts with similar injuries. Judge Rau’s private discussions with both sides during the mediation went a long way to convince the parties to compromise significantly in order to achieve an amicable settlement. I would recommend retaining Judge Rau for future dram shop cases and/or personal injury claims in general.

I will certainly give my highest recommendation for other counsel to use Resonate. Having used other companies in the past, I can honestly say that Judge Rau and Resonate handled this mediation in a manner that was more… understanding of the client’s issues than many other mediators with whom I have previously interacted. An all around excellent experience.

The client really enjoyed Judge Rau sharing her experiences. It was very helpful, and the exercise made the client look at her case from another perspective, which I think was helpful for her. My client loved it, felt that she was heard, and was very satisfied with the results. Resonate is always my first choice.

In the past, I have found mediations frustrating when [our client’s] defenses are sometimes glossed over and just seen as an impediment to settlement. Judge Rau understood the importance of both [our client’s] statutory and contractual defenses and gave them the weight they deserved. Her experience and acuity make her the ideal candidate to mediate any matter with complicated legal issues.
