    - Apr 12 2019 Hal is fabulous! His facilities are comfortable (much, much better than the courthouse!) his costs are reasonable and affordable, and he knows exactly how to frame ideas and solutions to bring everyone together. It's so important to get an agreement and for everyone to take part. He's the best!!!!
  • David Famulari

    - Feb 28 2019 Hal mediated a case where the plaintiff was very difficult, was on his third set of attorneys, and we needed the case to end. He evaluated the situation before we started, adapted the mediation process to the circumstances and we were able to get the matter resolved.

    - Jul 22 2018 Hal made what could have been an unpleasant experience as painless as possible. Good poker player too I bet :-). would definitely use his services again (though I am hoping not to)
  • Marty Rietveld

    - Jul 16 2018 I have known Hal for decades. The reason he such a great mediator is because He keeps both parties engaged calm and levelheaded. They say a true successful mediation is when both parties leave feeling They’ve given too much. Hal’s process leaves his clients from both sides of the mediation feeling they left the table with more than they anticipated.
  • J David Campbell EA

    - Jul 16 2018 Hal handled all of my questions and concerns with confidence and ease and gave me great peace of mind.
  • Dean Campbell

    - Jun 25 2018 Mr. Wotizky assisted me and far exceeded my expectations of what the outcome could have been during the dissolution of my marriage. I would refer his services to any friends or acquaintances for his nonprofessional services. he is professional and makes working through the difficult process of divorce bearable. I would like to personally thank him again for all his assistance in this case.
  • Jason Merriman

    - Jun 22 2018 Hal is an outstanding person to work with, honest and ethical to the max. Thanks Hal!
  • Lorenzo Ramos

    - Jun 22 2018 Sat with a client in the office. Hal was very responsive and understanding of the special request the mutual client was needing.
  • Thomas Cappiello

    - Jun 17 2018 I used Hal to mediate an amicable divorce. My ex-wife and I chose him because we were seeking a honest and fair uncontested separation. Suffice it to say we were done within six weeks of contacting Hal. It was a efficient and economical way to end a 35 year marriage. I think I speak for Yoko and myself that we were happy to have a friend help us discretely end our marriage. It’s sad to end a long time relationship but Hal helped make it as painless as possible.
  • Paul Seusy

    - Jun 01 2018 Hal Wotitizky has mediated many cases in which I've been involved as an attorney. He has several tools at his disposal to find the best approach to convince both sides to settle a case. I would never advise a client to settle a case unless I thought it was the right thing to do: Hal consistently empowers the client and leads them to determine which settlement options are best for the client. I recommend Hal without qualification.
  • Rachel Headley

  • Tammy Youngblood

    - May 17 2018 Quick, efficient and professional. I do not think anyone wants to deal with divorce but, Hal made the mediation process smooth and I was able to focus on the things I needed to. Reviewed by: Tammy Youngblood tammy.youngblood@whatis1st.com
  • Elias Mahshie

    - May 17 2018 Hal is knowledgeable, professional and courteous. He is effective as a mediator because he guides the parties towards settlements without forcing it - the parties reach agreement with Hal's guidance, not his powers coercion. I don't like it when mediators try to force a deal simply because they want to be known as the mediator that always settles cases. The agreement should be the product of the parties negotiations', not the mediator's forcefulness. Hal is good at keeping everyone on track and moving towards a mutually agreeable resolution.

    - Apr 19 2018 I have used Hal as a mediator and he has been kind enough to permit me to co-mediate several cases with him to complete my mediator certification training.

    - Aug 25 2017 Mr. Wotitzky is highly intelligent, listens well, and communicates clearly. As a mediator, I recommend him without reservation. He has an excellent ability to communicate with people. I've mediated cases with him many times, including with people who stated they completely lacked interest in any kind of settlement and would leave the mediation at the first opportunity. He settles the great majority of cases I bring to him.

  • Michael Dear

    Jul 02 2017 I retained Hal to mediate a civil case in which the parties seemed miles apart. He was professional, knowledgeable and understood the arguments both sides were making and would make in the litigation. Our mediation went long and he stayed into the evening to make sure we came together to resolve the case. Hal saved both sides in our case a lot of time, money and aggravation. I would recommend Wotitzky Mediation Center without hesitation.
