Ron, I can’t thank you enough for your hard work. As you know, we attempted mediation once before, so I’m confident in saying it couldn’t have settled without you.
Ron, thank you for your hard work on this mediation. I don’t think any other mediators could have resolved this case. Look forward to working with you many more times in the future.
Ron, you did a spectacular job yesterday. Thank you!
Thank you, Ron. I really appreciate all the work you put into this one. I can honestly say you are at the very top of my list of best mediators I have worked with. While I’m sure you already have an overflow of cases, I’ll certainly be recommending you to everyone.
After a long day of mediation which resulted in progress, but no final settlement, Ron continued to work with the parties for the next 2 weeks. The parties reached a full settlement of all issues in the case, and this was the result, almost exclusively, of Ron’s persuasion, perseverance and just plain hard work.
This was one of the most challenging mediations I’ve ever seen. The parties were bitter enemies who had been at each other’s throats in lawsuits dating back more than five years, and my client’s family business was threatened with extinction in the current trial. Ron’s work was, in a word, MASTERFUL.
Ron is among the most skilled advocates I have encountered. I know of few other lawyers who could have represented the clients’ interests the way Ron did, and fewer still who could have obtained the results he got for his clients. I give Ron my highest recommendation.
There are few, if any, mediators that possess Ron’s trial skills and experience, and this is part of what gives him such credibility and effectiveness in mediation.
Ron, thank you so much for your compassion, patience, and perspective. We would not have reached a resolution without your skill and steady hand. Well done.
In more than 2 decades of litigation practice, I’ve never seen a harder working, more effective mediator than Ron Bankston.
Our firm has used Ron Bankston to mediate a number of cases over the years. He is attentive, respectful, diplomatic and totally engaged — with the parties, the attorneys and the issues in the case. And he gets the job done.
[Ron] displayed a broad and deep knowledge of substantive law, tempered with a keen appreciation of the realities of the courthouse. But he also diagnosed the parties’ respective needs and acute sensitivities, and threaded a path toward reconciling those which quite literally brought the parties to a respectful handshake (and appropriate documentation) of a final settlement agreement that mooted the trial and all the years of previous litigation.
As a trial judge, when I referred cases to mediation, it was very rare for me to suggest a mediator, preferring the parties and attorneys to select their own mediator. However, on those occasions when I did suggest a mediator, in the most difficult, polarized cases, Ron Bankston was my recommendation, hands-down. And I can’t think of a single one of those cases that he did not get settled.
Ron is as fine a mediator as I’ve seen in almost 30 years of active trial practice in Houston.
[Ron] worked extremely hard in a case we had for over a year to get it resolved. Very impressive. I highly recommended.
