As far as the testimonial goes, several things come to mind.

[Jim has]…
The ability to attract excellent staff.
The ability to delegate, yet keep involved without being obvious.
The ability to get people to see the reality of any situation and establish a real rapport with both parties.

Excellent negotiator who never gives up. In a bench trial Jim and I were involved in, the trial was more of a negotiation between Jim and the judge rather than a trial.
