"I would not want Oran Kaufman's job as divorce mediator! But I will say, if someone's got to do it, Oran is the one! He does it well, with compassion, skill, fairness, and intelligence. He has the ability to look beyond the strong emotions and see the issues at hand. This allows people to feel safe, and work efficiently towards resolution. I recommend him highly."
