Best Articles of the Year:
“Lee brings to her mediations a wealth of experience from which all parties can draw. Her impressive ability to marry the case facts to negotiation strategy aided in the just resolution of our case.”N. Campbell
“I have known Lee for many years, but had never used her as a mediator until recently. Not surprisingly, she was prepared, having read all the documentation I had forwarded her pre-mediation, and she did an outstanding job in getting a difficult case settled. I look forward to using BAY Mediation and Lee in the future.”M. Smith
“Lee Wallace helped us resolve a case that I did not believe could be resolved. As an initial challenge we had multiple parties, several of whom had to join by remote video conference. The details of the case were also challenging [and] there were widely disparate views regarding the case. Lee was resolute, objective, and prepared. While her 30 years of trial experience and breadth of knowledge on a variety of legal issues were invaluable, her kind and logical demeanor got this case resolved. I must confess at one point I was ready to storm off myself in frustration at the other party, but Lee encouraged me to stick with it and keep working. I’m so glad she did!”A. Long
“Lee’s calm reasoning and creative solutions helped us to resolve a challenging case when one side was willing to walk away and the other side would not budge on their number. She worked hard to find a compromise hen none seemed possible.”B. Strothers
“It was a pleasure working with Lee T. Wallace during the mediation process. She pushed both sides to continue to fight through the process and not give up. And because of her vigorous determination I was able to settle my client’s claim to their satisfaction.”S. Carson
“Lee did an effective and efficient job getting this case to a successful resolution. She takes a low key approach to make sure each side does not feel undue pressure to increase their offer or decrease their demand. I will definitely use Lee for future mediations.”J. Brown
“I greatly enjoyed working with Ms. Lee Wallace as she was pleasant to work with and she did a great job in helping to facilitate a resolution.”N. Jandho
I chose Lee to mediate a whistleblower case pre-suit. It was a highly charged emotional case for my client. The other side showed up with six people to sit across the table from my client and me, so it was clear they were serious about defending the claim. With incredible tact and skill, Lee helped move the mediation forward over the course of four plus hours to a successful resolution. She understood the issues, had empathy for my client, but was realistic about the case. She had the right balance of empathy and tenacity. In short, she was the perfect mediator for our case and I would not hesitate to use her again, regardless of the type of case.R. Edwards
