I have known Douglas Brenner for 3 years. I have turned to him for legal advice more than once. He listens and always knows the pertinent questions to ask. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a fair and unbiased mediator.Mar 22, 2011
Good listener, kind, appropriate,professional, very detailed oriented. Researched my case and spent way more time than I expected would take, without any hesitation in order to achieve fairness. Solved the problem with great confidence to do it. I recommend him to anybody without hesitation.May 8, 2013
I was cent ly involved in a commercial dispute that seemed unending. I was actually terrified of getting sucked into a vortex of litigation court trials. Douglas gave me a level of confidence that it could be resolved and guided me hrough that process to a conclusion that was equitable to both parties and not nearly as expensive as it could have been without him. Thanks Douglas!May 6, 2013
Douglas listens twice as much as he speaks, allowing both parties to fairly state their cases. He is kind and easy to talk to, regardless of the difficulty of the subject. If you have doubts regarding Douglas' ability to resolve your dispute equitably and honorably, simply compose a list of your concerns and contact him. You won't be disappointed.Mar 18, 2011
Douglas Brenner helped my wife and I work out a complex marital situation. I cannot express how respectful and unbiased he was to both of us. His explanations and mild manner set a tone for us to work out all of our issues. I would highly recommend Douglas for anyone needing an impartial, kind and experienced mediator for any reason.Mar 17, 2011
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?MY EDUCATION NEVER CEASES, nor should yours. I take continuing legal education classes, talk routinely with lawyers, business owners, family and individual counselors and therapists, and read extensively. I also regularly attend trainings and seminars.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I HAVE A NEED FOR JUSTICE. As a kid, I always wanted to see things work out fairly... between people, customers and stores, animals in the same household, countries, and peoples around the world. THE DESIRE TO SEE JUSTICE SERVED led me to law school, and to a profession where I can use my knowledge of the legal system to help people resolve disputes, and bot fight unless you must... but always as a last resort. Rather, discuss the issues intelligently, and apply the law and experience to the issues to come to a fair conclusion, so that EVERYBODY WINS.
- What types of customers have you worked with?A large number of my mediation cases are divorce cases involving couples who have grown apart, or desire to move their lives in different directions. HOWEVER, I regularly and really enjoy mediating disputes between businesses and individuals who desperately want to avoid the uncertainty of going to trial. I have mediated cases for large unions, hospitals and physician groups, Major League Baseball, and the NFLPA. I used to represent athletes and entertainers, and often resolved disputes between celebrities and their employers... whether it was a major sports team or a major motion picture studio.
