"This is to let you know that this matter resolved at mediation yesterday.  Thanks for the great report and assistance you provided.  Perhaps because of your report, the other side did not even focus on liability, but instead focused exclusively on damages.  If I need another expert in this area, I'll know where to turn." -- BG, plaintiff's attorney, TN
