    Testimonials

    John Van Winkle is a convert from the cult of litigation to the religion of mediation.  His writing is lucid, concise, sprightly and blessedly without footnotes.  For the novice, his exposition will educate and train.  For the veteran, it will recall, highlight, emphasize and solidify.
