  • “[Carl] was instrumental in forging a settlement. He had patience. We were there all day. He was always willing to go back in and see if there was anyway he could get a party to move. I’d use him again and I recommend him. Put him in your rolodex.”
  • "Carl is an outstanding mediator. He works extremely hard to get both sides to bring their final settlement position to the table. It was due to his superior mediation skills that I was able to settle. I will not hesitate to use Carl again." 
  •  "Carl did a really good job of directing the energy and focus onto the issues of the case and didn’t let the process get sidetracked. He is sincere and communicates very clearly and in an objective manner. Carl is very credible, established a strong sense of trust, and provided excellent guidance."   
  • “Carl Botterud mediated and settled an almost impossible to settle case which was highly contentious . . . no way, no how, this sex harassment - sex assault case was going to settle any time before trial. Carl is extremely knowledgeable, sharp, quick to suggest alternative solutions, no bs, sensitive, but realistic and straightforward, a quality which I for one, appreciate. I am not inclined to the touchy-feely approach. Carl gets the job done, done right and done well. He was absolutely amazing . . . .”   
  •  "I met Carl a few years back, I had spoken to at least 5 attorneys about my case, They seemed to barely listen or believe my story, I was referred to Carl. Carl listened, he dug deep down to get answers, he made me feel confident in myself again, and always made sure I was comfortable and he does care. I walked away with a [resolution] that the others said wasn't possible.Thank you Carl!"
