What People Are Saying

“Michael Starr mediated a very contentious discrimination case in the SDNY  where I represented the defendant.  I strongly recommend him. He is highly skilled, enormously  patient, and was able to deal with some very problematic personalities.”

“I commend Michael Starr, who mediated this dispute.  He did a great job bringing the two sides together.  For the first time in my practice, mediation resulted in a  final agreement and outcome.  In addition to being talented, he was very professional, and I would highly recommend him in the future.”

“As Deputy General Counsel of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, I worked very closely with Michael for more than 17 years on many very sensitive and difficult employment and  labor relations matters.  Michael is an excellent lawyer – among the best I ever worked with – and always extremely creative and pragmatic as well as ethical.  He understood the importance of a finding ways to achieve amicable resolutions and was very effective  at doing so.  Given his knowledge, intellect, creativity and work ethic, I know Michael will be a highly effective and successful mediator.”
