"Thank you for your services and patience. It was nice working with you to reach a solution to this matter. I will definitely keep you in mind for future cases." - August, 2009
Word around here is that you did a great job in a mediation the other day in Duluth and that it settled about midnight.
You make me look good when I recommend you. Thanks ..." - October, 2009

"Good job in settling it. I told [a partner]you would be good on this one like you always are." - July, 2010
Thank YOU for an excellent job done. We very much appreciate it." - January, 2011
"Thank you for your time and for the amazing job you did in the original mediation." [from one of the clients after a 10 1/2 hour mediation] - April, 2011
"I participated in a mediation yesterday where retired St. Louis County Judge David Sullivan served as the mediator. David was a civil litigator practicing in many areas before going on the bench for a 10 year stint. He has a very broad litigation background and a wonderful temperment and approach for achieving a mediated settlement.
David winters in Florida and has a summer place in Wisconsin. He comes to the Twin Cities from either location. [W]hen he’s coming to the Cities [he] does not charge for travel time or costs." - April, 2011
"Judge Sullivan, Please add my name to the references section on your website. Further, if anyone wants a personal conversation on your skills and ability in resolving a conflict, I would be pleased to have a phone call with the individual to provide them additional information. Your efforts yesterday resolved an issue between individuals who have an enormous amount of animosity and mistrust towards each other. I was extremely skeptical of reaching a mediated result between [these parties] and quite pleased with the result. Thank you for your efforts and I will be pleased to highly recommend you to attorneys looking for a mediator to resolve their client's disputes." -April, 2011
"Congratulations to all of you for your hard work and job well done. I’m copying my staff so they can remove this from our calendar." [from the Judge] - May, 2011
"As a true sign of your patience Dave, you can also put on your website that it was almost 9:30 am yesterday before you told me to shut up." - April, 2011
"Judge, thanks again for the great job you did last night. Both sides are unhappy this a.m. so the mediation was a success. I am comfortable that the settlement is the right thing for my client and friend . . ." - June, 2011
[from the Judge] - December, 2011
"I was pleased with the assistance you provided. Both [the other lawyer] and I were skeptical that we could resolve the claim, but you helped push the parties toward an amicable resolution in what would have been an expensive case for both parties to try." - December, 2011
