Thank you Gayle, for helping us in our journey. You certainly have a gift
for diplomacy, honesty, kindness, thoughtfulness and caring. I’m sure
we are just one of many couples who have been blessed to have worked
with you and I’m so glad you were available, as you came so highly
recommended and highly regarded by so many.

Thank you for your wise counsel, expertise, and most of all – humanity – in
helping us to come to a fair and mediated settlement, which brings closure
to what has been a painful part of life. The overall sense of RELIEF is such
a freeing experience. 
                                                                                                       A. A. (mediation client)

                                        We sat in Mediation last summer with our daughter. We have
                                        often thought of you since then, and your ability to discern what
                                        is best for everyone. As we watch the children playing happily
                                        and safely, we appreciate your time and effort to help work things
                                        out. Your thoughtfulness fills our hearts. 
                                                                                                                               J & I (parents of a mediation client)

We’re so glad there’s you to guide us through all our troubles. 
                                                                                                       V & G (clients)

                                       I wanted to thank you for all the energy, time, skill, and know-how
                                       you brought to our meetings together.  I miss the dynamic of working
                                       within the context of mediation, which you are able to deliver so well!
                                                                                                                               B.C. (mediation client)

Thank you for all your hard work and assistance. I was so impressed
and learned a lot of great mediation skills. 
                                                                                                       C (law student)

                                      I just wanted to thank you for your advice. It has empowered me to stand
                                      up for myself more, and for my child in regards to our situation. That
                                      meeting was a real confidence boost! 
                                                                                                                               S. (client)

On behalf of myself, the firm and the clients who we referred to you for
mediation, we wish to thank you for the successful results you have been
able to achieve.  You have been able to find compromise and agreement
on several files that contained very difficult issues. This has saved the
parties, and most importantly, their children, from a lengthy contentious
litigation process. It is results like the ones you have been able to craft that
make the mediation process so successful.
                                                                                                       J. L. (lawyer)

                                      Gayle is a very experienced and competent attorney, she brings a fresh
                                      approach and I am very impressed with her grasp of dealing with the
                                      challenges. I believe she is truly an appropriate advocate in a most
                                      collaborative and cooperative way. 
                                                                                                                               F. H. (US attorney) 

I’m not sure how often you receive thank you notes from people whose
mediation didn’t settle, but I wanted to thank you for your time and effort.
You do an excellent job. I could tell how much you cared about the people
in the room and about the outcome.
