"[Sheldon Weinhaus]" has a thorough understanding of all areas of the law, in its intimate detail and broad compass. To each case for which he is responsible, he brings intense intellectual curiousity and complete honesty, his conduct is always tempered by common sense and unflailing civility. He isolates issues quickly and correctly resolves them expeditiously and presents his resolution objectively, lucidly and with persuasive conviction. His traits include honesty, patience and poise even in trying circumstances, flexibility, the ability to listen and above all, the ability to remain neutral, excellent understanding of the law, wide and varied trial experience, open-mindedness, with a decent respect for the opinions of others, firm without being rude, decisive and the ability to conduct an arbitration to achieve a fair result."
