*Excerpt from Joe’s presentation: 
The Fragility of a Good Professional Reputation Negotiation at mediation can be stressful, especially if the other side is acting in what you deem to be bad faith.  The combination of bad behavior from the opposition and growing client frustration and disappointment can boil over.  This is particularly true if the mediator is not effectively cooling things down.  Don’t be the lawyer whose long-established and well-earned reputation is sullied by a momentary outburst.  Don’t punch Charlie Bauman.  Take a deep breath.  Gather yourself together.  And make a counteroffer.*
