Testimonials

I’ve had the opportunity to work with many fine people, both in mediation and my civic work.  I am pleased to include a few of their testimonials.

Dan’s approach to mediation was outstanding! His persistent efforts to build on common understanding gave us the best chance to see resolution possible. While the matter didn’t settle, the parties are well positioned for continued settlement discussions with a clear understanding of the agreed to facts, the differences, options, and the stakes

Michael J. Schilling, Esq., Schilling Law, Overland Park, Kansas

Dan served as a mediator in a case in which I represented a defendant who had been sued.  Dan did a tremendous job of understanding each side’s position and helping each side shape a resolution to this matter.  Thanks to Dan’s creativity, hard work and persistence the parties were able to resolve their case before trial.  I strongly recommend Dan as a mediator.

Douglas K. DeZube,
Law Office of Douglas K. DeZube, LLC.

Dan was an excellent mediator.  Even though the case did not settle, he stayed with us (both attorneys) until the case was eventually resolved.  His “post-mediation” work was essential to the resolution.

Dan was professional and knowledgeable.  He understood the issues and presented alternatives and suggestions that were very helpful.  The case was settled to the satisfaction of all parties and this was almost exclusively due to the job that Dan did for us.  I would highly recommend Dan to anyone seeking a mediator for their litigation.

I have had the pleasure of working with Dan on legal matters related to land use law and public policy as part of advocacy efforts related to preservation and planning issues affecting the Country Club Plaza. This occurred in relation to my duties as executive director of Historic Kansas City Foundation in the 1990s and most recently as an officer in the Save our Plaza Political Action Committee. In addition to the three top attributes, I selected he delivered exception services that incorporated the other listed attributes as well. As a federally certified preservation professional with over 25 years experience, I consider Dan to be my top “go to” consultant due to his exceptional knowledge, experience and ability to zero in on and communicate the defining issues of public policy and land use law.

Sally Schwenk, Architectural Historian,
Sally Schwenk Associates, Inc., Kansas City, Missouri

Dan Cofran served the citizens of the City of Kansas City Missouri with energy, integrity, and vision. I had the privilege (as President of my homes association) of witnessing Dan’s leadership on the City Council in behalf of not only his own constituents but of everyone who shared his vision of a thriving Kansas City. Dan’s logic and innovative ideas made him a worthy candidate for Mayor and I was proud to serve in that effort. His motto was “People Not Politics”, and he supported that by his stands on the issues and his selfless dedication to his constituents.

 
 
 
 

Phillip L. Fowler, City Councilman, Monrovia, Indiana

I have known Dan for over twenty years. He is a committed service leader and has been active in the community working on the plans and programs which serve Kansas City and the surrounding communities.

As the Executive Director of KC Consensus, Dan worked on substantive issues of the mainstream ie, the absentee ballot, education, race relations, and several other significant civic issues which helped to change the community for the better.

He served honorably as a City Council representative and gave citizens hope and respect for good government. In his run for Mayor, he was unsuccessful yet he was the right candidate to lead the City at the time. Dan has performed in a superior fashion as an attorney and continues to provide his best council when engaged for service.

I respect and admire him for his continued service to the community.

Greg Baker,
President, Mainstream Minority Commonwealth, LLC, Damascus, Oregon

Dan is detailed oriented. He pays close attention to city issues, works hard for resolution and is a great person to work with.
