Please join us on September 28, 2023 to hear from Sean Ponist and other leading attorneys and mediators as they discuss “Successfully Mediating Real Estate Cases.” As more than 95% of civil cases resolve before trial, it is critical to be just as skilled in mediation as in the courtroom. This presentation, sponsored by the Real Property Section of the San Francisco Bar Association, will cover mediation basics as well as tips and strategies for more advanced practitioners.
“Sean and I worked on the same criminal trial team in the Marin District Attorney’s Office, where we often worked on cases together. I found he was a good strategic thinker, analyzed legal issues thoughtfully, and communicated very well with juries. He’s a great trial attorney, and I’m sure his communication skills make him a hit with his clients, too.”
“Sean provided careful, accurate counsel in a complicated legal matter I was involved in for a period of three years. He is well trained and allocates his time well. In short he is a very good attorney”
“I worked previously with Sean as an attorney at a firm that handles complex and high-stakes litigation, as well as general commercial disputes. Sean worked closely with clients to craft business solutions and, if necessary, zealously pursue litigation on their behalf. He is an effective advocate both in and out of the courtroom. Sean is also especially gifted at explaining legal concepts and at helping clients assess their legal options, including arbitration, mediation, trial, and settlement.”
“Sean and I were both attorneys at a former firm with which we were affiliated. Sean is a very smart, experienced attorney, and a really nice guy besides! He works very hard and is dedicated to doing excellent work for his clients.”
“I have had the good fortune to work with Sean on a very complex real estate matter. In spite of these challenges, Sean was able to distill the issues down to manageable components. This is the mark of a skilled attorney. I look forward to the next opportunity to work with him.”
