For my taste he is relatively uninterested in seeking resolution by agreement and compromise and prefers to seek maximum results whatever the cost.

For my taste he is overly aggressive and difficult to resolve matters that really deserve a resolution other than full scale adversarial.

I was involved with him in a case 2 or 3 years ago, where we both represented defendants (insurance defense). I think he handled himself very well. It was settled prior to trial. His preparation was excellent and his presentation was very good. That's the extent of my memory.
