Thomas H. Tongue

"I use Met Wilson as a mediator because he will quickly determine the obstacles to settlement and help the parties figure out a solution, if there is one, and not waste our time if there isn't."
Dave Markowitz

"I have used Met as a mediator and have served on arbitration panels with him. As a mediator his tenacity, experience and keen intelligence make him effective. As an arbitrator his strong work ethic and sound judgment ensure that the arbitration panel focuses on what is important. When Met is the arbitrator the parties know that they will be treated fairly and with respect."
Steve Blackhurst

"Met brings in-depth practice experience to the table. Because of his background, he quickly understands the business issues and can come up with creative solutions to seemingly impossible problems. I highly recommend him."

"I would give [Met] 100% on Intellect; 100% on Preparation and 100% on Results"

"[Met] is extremely knowledgeable of business, finance and investment so that gives him a lot of credibility as a result. Met is also a quick study. Mediators who don't have that level of business knowledge need time to understand and step up where as Met can do it quickly."

"[Met] comes in prepared. He recognizes when a caucus will help, when personal contact will move things forward. If the case does not settle, he keeps in touch, follows up - he doesn't just put in his time and go home."

"[Met keeps in touch by] Either by phone or email. Met just keeps in touch and asks "is there anything more, I can do to help."

"Met is effective at helping the parties to focus on merits; understand the risks; understand the economical and emotional reasons to settle. Met is low key, warm and professional."

"Met brings a certain authoritative command to the situation, that is viewed as credibility with the players."

"Met stands out as being very experienced. His temperament is well suited to the job at hand. He is clearly knowledgeable about the subject area."

"[Met] I think you are the greatest. You helped me settle a case with one of the most bullheaded plaintiffs' attorneys left in Portland. Of course I give myself most of the credit because I had the good sense to select you."
- Michael J. Esler
