Now that both the dust and settlement check have closed, I wanted to thank you for all of your efforts in the case. It would not have settled without your guidance, expertise, and gentle nudging. I look forward to working with you on future matters. 


Thank you very much for all of your hard work in yesterday's mediation. Your assistance was invaluable. Without you, the case would certainly have remained unresolved."

Thanks again for your efforts. The settlement was in everyone's best interest and we could not have done it without you.

Both Ms. *** and I were very impressed with your approach, professionalism and effectiveness as a mediator.

Very knowledgeable, Insurance companies respect his opinion, extensive trial experience [ABOTA], Excellent mediator, fair objective arbitrator. Extraordinarily capable and forthcoming with efforts and involvement.

Great with clients; thorough; evaluates the value of cases extremely well; defense carriers respect his opinion, and he is patient.

RA is head & shoulder above all others because of his many years of expertise in Personal Injury and genuine effort he invests no matter how small the case.

Gets top $ from carriers. My clients really felt comfortable with him.

Very fair; clients like him, carriers respect him, smart, thorough; works hard; will get your case settled; does not charge travel and is not interested whether or not insurance companies will continue to use him as an arbitrator.

Excellent skills and demonstrates exceptional commitment to doing a good job.

RA has mediated at least 5 cases for me. All were brought to successful conclusion due to his efforts.

His history and expertise in litigation have given him high credibility and widespread respect in both plaintiff and defense bars. Many regard him as the ""best"" in the tri-counties.


Now that the " " mater is well behind us, I want to thank you on behalf of my clients for your very thorough review, analysis, and fair ruling on their case. During the stressful process, you treated them with dignity and respect and my clients were both receptive and appreciative of that.

I have retained Mr. Carrington in over 25 mediations. I try to hire him first in all of my cases. He is the most effective mediator I have known in 28 years of practice. He knows how to help inexperienced clients through the process and nobody works harder than he does at achieving settlement.

R. Stephen Kinnaird

Thank you for your excellent work as the arbitrator in our case. This was a fairly difficult case, and we appreciate your thorough examination and consideration of the evidence and your efforts you put into the final award.

I am pleased to report that the projected three-week jury trial in the wrongful death case was resolved today with a formal settlement on the record. R.A. Carrington merits kudos for his efforts. Santa Barbara Superior Court Judge

At the first mediation the defendants offered $2,000,000 to settle the case. The offer was rejected. Judge Eskin requested the services of R.A. Carrington to mediate. Mr. Carrington sat through pretrial motions and repeatedly engaged the parties over a period of about 10 days. Mr. Carrington was ultimately able to bring about a full and complete resolution of all claims for the sum of $7,000,000. His efforts were extremely effective.

Robert Stoll, Brian Panish
