Mediator Michael Eshman – Hitting the Ground Running

Within a week of joining our panel, Mediator Michael Eshman was already mediating with rave reviews.


“Michael did an excellent job. He connected with my client and made her feel comfortable. It felt like a tough case to get resolved, but he helped us get it done.” -Plaintiff’s attorney


“Michael did a great job at moving both sides toward a resolution. He gave excellent feedback as to the moves we proposed, offering insight clearly based in experience. We were incredibly pleased with the efficacy and efficiency with which the negotiations progressed.” -Defense attorney


His work has not been limited to helping parties resolve their cases. In October, he took the reins and interviewed Ana Martinez for our #futureofresolution podcast, discussing the importance of supporting Latinx students and attorneys in the legal community, published an article on language access in ADR with the American Bar Association Section of Dispute Resolution, and was a panelist on Miles’ Mediation Week webinar – Diversity and Implicit Bias in ADR.


We can’t wait to see what Michael does next!
