"Judge Beeman understood the substantive issues as well as the personalities and other factors at play. He did the parties a great service in helping to achieve a result. I am very impressed with his dedication and effort."
"Judge Beeman was the hardest working mediator I have ever encountered. Top notch."
"Judge Beeman was fantastic. My clients really respected his opinion, and he made them feel good about their decision to settle the case."
"Judge Beeman worked very hard to get this case settled. We have utilized him on other cases, and again he does not give up getting the case settled which we really appreciate."
"Judge Beeman was insightful, direct, and diligent. This was a very volatile matter, with highly emotional overtones. The judge's patience and persistence is what accounted for success, which had eluded us during the session itself. But he kept on it and succeeded in closing the matter after I had abandoned hope and resigned myself to pre-trial prep."
"The retired judge knows his stuff and has a ‘good bedside manner’. He does it well. He’s able to explain to a plaintiff, ‘Here’s what I think your case is worth.’"
"He is one of the most meticulous and prepared mediators. He will call a week in advance, asking ‘Where’s the brief?’ He wants to know everything about a case."
"I normally made my mediation briefs confidential. I talked with him a couple of times beforehand. He called me up and said the issues I brought up were things the other side hadn’t considered"
"Judge Beeman was able to settle a very difficult case. He was terrific to work with and we would not hesitate to utilize his services in the future."
"One of the best ADR experiences I have had. He cuts to the material issues, but knows how to communicate diplomatically when needed. I would have no hesitance to again seek his help."
