About Mr. Paul Festenstein

CBA Lawyer Badge
As a practicing attorney for both defense and plaintiffs' cases over forty years, I have developed a reputation in the industry as an attorney who is a straight shooter and knows the value of resolving cases without proceeding to trial. I believe in collaborative "conference type" mediation, where I work hard with both sides to understand their positions their goals and work together with each side in confidence to achieve the best possible result. it is often the case that in the first mediation session, matter might not be resolved, but each side comes away with a better understanding of each other's strategies, and in some case learn a lot about their own case. This often times leads to a settlement in the second session of the mediation. My reputation for integrity is my strongest asset- please feel free to contact Attorney Kevin Conway of Cooney & Conway,or Ken Hoffman of Mitchell, Hoffman & Wolf, P. C. for a reference. Thanks, Paul Festenstein
