I recently used Mr. Braun for a mediation in a car wreck case. He did an excellent job helping us to reach a fair resolution of the case. He treated my clients (the Plaintiffs) with respect and care while being straight forward about both the good and the bad of our case. He also pushed the insurance company to come up to a number where my clients were fairly compensated. I will certainly use Mr. Braun again in the future and have no hesitation giving him a five star review!Chris Conway
