I recently engaged Judge Gomolinski to mediate a case that was not factually or legally complicated, but other factors — including the amount of the lien and the position of the lienholder — made the case a challenge to resolve. This case would not have settled but for the efforts of Judge Gomolinski. He was prepared, knew all the relevant facts, had a command of the pertinent law and demonstrated a level of competence and experience that deeply resonated. I believe I can speak for opposing counsel in saying that we believe we reached a fair, reasonable agreement thanks to Judge Gomolinski.
