I endorse Dean without reservation, as he is an exceptionally sharp attorney with an encyclopedic knowledge of the law. Amongst his colleagues, Dean has a reputation for integrity and commitment to his clients. My personal experience in opposing Dean is that he does not approach opposing lawyers with the needless antagonism, which only serves to drive up litigation costs. To the contrary, Dean makes every effort to settle the case in a thoughtful and creative manner.
