ADR Systems, It’s Settled.®

Judge Bernthal’s calm demeanor and deliberate approach helped us settle a very difficult case which had failed in a prior mediation.  His ability to put my client at ease and gain her respect was instrumental in getting the job done.  I would not hesitate to have Judge Bernthal mediate any of my future cases.
