Mr. F, Attorney at Law

I will certainly recommend you to the partners here and others mediating in Santa Barbara and will definitely keep you in mind next time I have a case up that way.”

Mr. S, Attorney at Law

“ Ms. Lindenauer is an excellent and knowledgeable mediator . She helped us settle a case that I thought could not be settled . She listened to my clients and was able to explain to them why settlement and defendant’s offer made sense for all concerned . Her demeanor made everyone comfortable and facilitated settlement. I would highly recommend her.”

Jorge Garcia, Attorney at Law, Los Angeles (for Plaintiff)

“I appreciate your professional handling. You knew the case, were straightforward, keep the mediation focused and guided the process to an equitable conclusion… I think you were able to create a sense of trust in both parties that allowed a sense of even handiness in your handling of the process.”

Rex Melton, California Field Claims Adjuster, California Casualty Management Company (for Defendant)

“Ms. Lindenauer worked tirelessly and efficiently to move the parties in a successful direction towards settlement. She was open, approachable and effective in her method of mediation. My client was truly made comfortable by Ms. Lindenauer’s approach during the otherwise stressful situation and we were both extremely pleased with the result. I would highly recommend Ms. Lindenauer as a mediator in the future, and have already done so to many other attorneys.”

Chad Prentice, Attorney at Law, Santa Barbara (for Plaintiff)

“You seemed quite proficient in cutting through the posturing statements on both sides, and I found it quite endearing that neither side found it necessary to wax on with superfluous nonsense because you have done your homework and kept everyone focused on the settlement target… Since you kept both sides separated, I obviously have no knowledge of how you handled my opponents. However, it is obvious from the successful conclusion, that you were able to convey to the opposition our side of the argument, along with being able to focus each side within settlement parameters that were obviously directed toward a successful resolution, rather than being directed to the rote process. You… clearly, took the time to prepare, undertook the process with a sincere effort to assist the litigants in finding common ground upon which to build a settlement. I want to thank you for doing such a wonderful job, and I would look forward to working with you again in the future.”

Martin F. Goldman, Attorney at Law, Encino (for Plaintiff)
