Simon Mediation - Dan Simon, M.A., J.D.


Dan Simon, M.A., J.D.

I went into the mediation without high expectations. My colleagues had told me that Dan had a very “soft” and ineffective approach but I went anyway because so many of my clients left mediations complaining that they hadn’t been heard. Dan let both sides say whatever they wanted. When one party started feeling picked on, he reminded the person that they were not being judged and that they could say whatever they wanted. The control seemed to empower the parties to settle a problem that had been festering for quite some time in only two hours. We settled all of the remaining disputes in a peaceful manner that will likely allow the parties to better raise their children together.

My wife and I were going through the most difficult time in our marriage and were facing the most difficult issue for us: how to raise our daughter. Dan Simon mediated our conflict and helped us get to a better place. He was totally focused and attentive to us, but never imposed his own agenda or interfered with our own process as we struggled to sort things out.
