Mediator Rob Kaplan, with whom Ed Oster has worked on several mediations, has this to say:

"I have received feedback from both Plaintiff's counsel and Defense counsel that Ed is a superb Mediator.  I also had the opportunity to co-mediate with Ed (over the course of nearly an entire year) an extraordinarily challenging and highly complex 7-party catastrophic personal injury case.  Ed quickly got his arms around the facts and legal issues, was highly intuitive and fully understood the human dynamic.  Ed was, in a word, invaluable.  I give Ed '5 Stars' and I highly recommend him."

A frequent mediation participant
summed up Ed Oster this way:  

“If you could go into a lab and put together in one person everything you want in a mediator - experience, integrity, intelligence, creativity and personality - you would have Ed Oster."

A top plaintiff’s lawyer
in Los Angeles says simply, “Extremely smart. Tough. Fair.”

A New York partner in a national defense firm
 describes her experience with Ed:  “He was great.  He built a rapport with plaintiff and plaintiff’s counsel, our client really liked him, and he painlessly got the job done for all of us.  I very enthusiastically recommend him.”




A managing partner of a top tier Los Angeles defense firm says "Ed is always thoroughly prepared.  He is extremely knowledgeable and has an extraordinary ability to deal with even the toughest opposing counsel and parties.  Ed has a great deal of enthusiasm for the mediation process and does not give up - even on the toughest cases.  Ed is a great addition to the JW roster!" 


A colleague who has known Ed since college days
explains, "Ed's skill as a mediator springs from his natural ability to develop genuine relationships built on mutual respect."
