Deborah mediated a dispute that was complicated by both difficult legal issues and some personal animosity of the parties. She defused some of the tension in the opening joint session, and a dozen hours later we had a settlement. Through it all she was unfailingly pleasant, but relentless at the same time, and even as the hours wore on she kept her focus and made the parties do the same. I would work with her again if I had the opportunity to do so.

Dear Deborah,

You did an outstanding job in helping us settle a really tough case for my clients. Thank you from my clients . . . all of whom appreciated the fact that this matter was put behind them. You took a tough case; one that meant a lot to my clients and you made the plaintiff see our side and made my clients see just how poorly all of them had handled the relationship. In the end what you did settled the case.....Thanks...I look forward to seeing you at the next mediation.

Ms. Rothman mediated one business litigation case for us and served on a panel of arbitrators for a commercial lease dispute. In both cases she displayed a quick and intelligent grasp of the issues. As a mediator, she was excellent at separating the key issues from the distractions. As an arbitrator, she again helped to identify the key issues, resulting in a settlement after opening statements. We are pleased to recommend her, without reservation, as a mediator or arbitrator.

"I have used Ms. Rothman as a Mediator in the context of two complex business litigations. Both of these litigations consisted of highly emotional parties, and adversarial counsel. One of these litigations was between brothers, and so although it was based on a contract and real estate dispute, the dispute also had significant emotional, familial and historical components. In both of these mediations, Ms. Rothman tirelessly and aggressively strove for settlement. Each of the mediations lasted into the small hours of the next morning, because settlement seemed to Ms. Rothman to be in reach, even if the parties and counsel were ready to give up. In the first mediation, settlement was achieved due to Ms. Rothman's efforts at the end of the marathon session. In the second mediation, although the parties went home without a settlement, Ms. Rothman stayed a part of the negotiations for the next few weeks, and contributed to the settlement that was eventually reached. I recommend Ms. Rothman as a mediator without reservation."

"I am writing to thank you for the wonderful work that you have undertaken as mediator for my clients. The cases have been varied, and typically complex. Discrimination and wrongful termination cases when I represented the employer, and in others where I represented the employee, as well as sophisticated business disputes, and certainly the hightlight recently was when I sued the entire bench for discrimination on behalf of a Court commissioner. Your deft handling of that matter was truly masterful!"
