I would highly recommend Ms. Shikina as a mediator.

She was personable and interfaced well with all of the parties and their counsel.  She was adept at navigating interpersonal dynamics and keeping the parties with strong feelings from getting hung up in negotiating with each other.  

She was able to help the parties focus on the key substantive points that were the core impediments to settlement.  With Ms. Shikina's aid, the parties worked through those issues and ultimately reached a point where they could find common ground on mutually acceptable terms.

Our difficult case settled with Ms. Shikina's invaluable help.

​I have used her services for 3 Oakland civil cases.  She works so hard, she has tremendous emotional intelligence.  She is very effective as a mediator, and I would know from my 10 years working for insurance companies, using very expensive mediators such as JAMS, which charges $4000 for half a day, $7000 for full day.  I highly recommend Ms. Shikina.  She will settle your case and make you look good in front of your clients.

I have used her services twice in matters at the Hayward Superior Court. In both cases, I did not think a settlement could be reached and in both cases, with her help, we did so. Patient, thoughtful, and smart, I highly recommend her.

I have known Ms. Shikina for many years.  She is knowledgeable, reliable and a great mediator.  She is able to tackle tough cases and get the parties to agree on an amicable outcome.  If you want to get a case settled with a fair settlement, I would highly recommend using Ms. Shikina.

I highly recommend Alice Shikina, she's an amazing, professional and patient mediator. Her intelligence and way to help the parties understand each other's viewpoint then to facilitate the resolution to the case is just something that you are looking for.
