About this pro
We had been in and out of mediation for years. We would get anxious about finances, mostly. Our first mediator retired and one fired us. Jay somehow eased our concerns and elicited our trust at the first meeting. Some of this is an acquired skill but the rest and probably the most important part of it is character. Jay maintains a calm presence in the sessions even (and this is important) when it was tense between us. And of course he knows his stuff which further contributed to a sense of safety as you navigate uncharted waters. We were stuck, and Jay got us moving again until we finished our process with good will to share. I recommend him highly.Jul 7, 2018Verified

Mr. Lazrus service is exceptional, and he is truly one of a kind. I could not have asked for a better lawyer to advice me on a multitude of concerns I was facing. I fully recommend his services to anyone seeking council in his filed of expertise.Aug 14, 2016Verified
I needed to have a contract reviewed and guidance on how to proceed in getting a contractor to perform. Jay's initial response was almost immediate, as were responses to a few subsequent questions. His assessment of the situation was succinct and effective. I'll be closing my issues in early May. Thumbs up to Rae Group.Apr 21, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Mediations are generally best served by an hourly rate. I try to keep my expenses lean to be able to offer a reasonable hourly rate.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I hold a pre-mediation call with the parties so they feel comfortable with me as their mediator. Then I ask them for a brief confidential mediation statement so I have a better understanding of their concerns and their desires.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a law degree, the basic 40 hour mediation training and advanced training on such topics as complex matters, divorce and family issues, drafting mediation memoranda, real estate and other issues.
