“Rebecca is one of the most principled attorneys I have come across in my years of practice. She is a credit to the profession. I will continue to use her as a mediator."

"In my 34 years in the profession, Ms. Wisbar is easily in the top ten mediators I have ever encountered."

"Excellent job!  You explained the mediation process very well and made the Board representative comfortable with participating until the parties reached settlement. We will be calling on you in the future."
