Client Testimonials


“I have had the pleasure of using Jeff Morris on more than one occasion. He is most definitely a polished and professional mediator and my go to mediator. If he can’t get a matter resolved, nobody can.”

“Dear Jeff, Thank you for hosting the mediation today using the Zoom app. It worked very well even though this was a complex multi-party mediation. I look forward to using it again. Not only did it allow me to stay at home during the virus outbreak, it saved me a lot of travel time. In addition, my client and I could both focus on other tasks while you were in caucus with the other parties, without disturbing one another.”
