Representative Recommendations of Ms. Axelrod’s Judge Pro Tempore | Mediator | Settlement Master Work

In a complex real estate matter involving issues surrounding title insurance, a prior foreclosure action, a mortgage, and alleged negligence on the part of 10 parties represented by six law firms, Axelrod managed to get all the parties settle the entire matter in a single day. For her Settlement Master services in the complex action, an attorney in the case, Scott Rothman, a named Partner in Curley & Rothman, LLC, gave her the following recommendation:

Sheryl served as mediator in a complex real estate litigation case, involving ten parties and six law firms. The parties and their respective counsel viewed a resolution as unlikely heading into a mediation session. Sheryl came prepared with a firm grasp of complicated facts and a good understanding of some atypical issues of law. By the end of the day, what seemed impossible became a reality, a settlement was accomplished, and an expensive trial proceeding was averted. I would recommend Sheryl for mediation services for both her knowledge of substantive law and expertise with dispute resolution.

Amy Blumenthal, a Partner at Kutak Rock LLP, had this to say about Ms. Axelrod’s skills as a Settlement Master / Mediator:

Sheryl served as a mediator in a six figure property damage matter against my insurer client. The parties started out so far apart that we immediately walked in and said "this will never settle". However, after less than 4 hours we were done, with both sides being pleased with the result. I'd easily use Sheryl again for another matter.
