Judge McNamara was instrumental in settling a very difficult and contentious case. Although I disagreed with certain (not all) of Judge McNamara’s legal positions, she expressed her opinions in a way that got my clients to focus on other things besides their dissatisfaction. There was nothing but bad blood between the parties, and Judge McNamara appealed to the better nature of both sides to resolve their differences. These intangibles, plus her experience, social skills, and ability to translate the process to the parties in an understandable way from a judge’s perspective, were all instrumental in settling the case.
