We highly recommend Dean Christopherson. We came to him with a nightmare case having had an attorney who was suspended and failed to disclose it and had mislead us into a hole we could not climb out of. Dean gave us our life back in many ways. He was masterful in the way he used the law to give us leverage and turn the whole situation around. I really believe that most lawyers would not have had the attention to detail and knowledge that Dean possessed. He was so clear with his communication and even when we were starting to see the light he he remained cautiously optimistic reminding us that it was not over. Always full disclosure, good or bad. Dean is not only competent, he is also a very kind human being. I recommend him with no reservations. I am still grateful we found him.

I have been working with Dean for over 17 years. He has represented my company on countless collection litigation matters with great success. Dean is not only extremely knowledgeable, but is also an excellent communicator. He is always honest and straight forward with his opinions and assessments, and conveys updates and developments in a timely manner. Dean has an extremely pleasant demeanor, and conducts himself with the utmost professionalism at all times. I would highly recommend Dean!

I have been working in a financial institution in the San Francisco Bay area in a capacity where I hired counsel to represent the bank. Dean is my first choice when it comes to retaining a bay area attorney for civil litigation. Dean is honest and straightforward, very detailed, and always reachable. I highly recommend Dean.

I have known Dean Christopherson for nearly 20 years. I know him to be a highly competent commercial litigator, particularly in the banking world where he has practiced for more than 25 years. As a mediator myself, I can attest that, with his calming temperament and quick insight, Dean is in a wonderful position to continue to develop a very successful mediation practice, particularly in cases involving secured transactions and banking litigation. I endorse him without reservation.

Dean served as a mediator in a matter with a difficult plaintiff (I represented the defendants). Dean did a good job focusing on the facts and legal theories, ultimately helping the parties reach a resolution.

My firm recently used Dean as a mediator and we were very satisfied. He spotted the issues with the case and laid a good groundwork for resolution. Resolving our lawsuit was not easy. Dean did a great job getting our dialogue on the healthy path of settlement. The parties, including my client, walked away assured that they had reached the best outcome without going to trial.

“We selected Dean to mediate a difficult fraudulent conveyance lawsuit based on his resume for handling commercial matters and his very reasonable fee schedule. The case was complicated by legal and factual disagreements. Expectations for settlement going into mediation were low given the positions of the parties. After a full day of mediation and Dean sticking with the case through telephonic follow-up with counsel, a resolution was eventually reached. I give a lot of credit for achieving the settlement to Dean’s insight into the parties’ perceptions and his willingness to continue working with us when settlement seemed impossible. I highly recommend Dean Christopherson as a mediator, especially for a complex real estate matter.”
