Keith Schulner

GENERAL OVERVIEW

Hon. Keith Schulner, MBA, MDR, is uniquely qualified to help you with your construction issues in that he earned a Master of Dispute Resolution, has construction litigation experience as an attorney, and acted as a mediator and arbitrator for construction issues. He has helped thousands of people resolve their disputes. Have him help you.


Keith Schulner, as a trial attorney, worked for plaintiffs and defendants and tried cases before juries and judges. He received worldwide recognition for his leadership role in a multimillion-dollar dispute that was successfully mediated. He has appeared in the media including CNN, NBC, Dutch Television, The Los Angeles Times, Money Magazine and The Wall Street Journal. He earned the highest rating possible, AV, from Martindale-Hubbell's Peer Review Ratings which "shows that a lawyer has reached the height of professional excellence. He or she has usually practiced law for many years, and is recognized for the highest levels of skill and integrity."

Judge Schulner realized he was gifted with the ability to help people understand when it was in their best interest to settle and how to structure a settlement for maximum benefit. He knew that mediation would be an excellent use of these talents. To better help people with disputes and complicated financial or business problems, he earned a full Master of Business Administration (MBA) merit scholarship and was the first attorney to graduate with an MBA and Master of Dispute Resolution (MDR) from Pepperdine, which tied Harvard for having the best Dispute Resolution program in our nation.

Judge Schulner has facilitated settlements as a Judge Pro Tem and Mediator in California’s Superior Courts. He has served as an arbitrator for the California Bar and Superior Court as well as a neutral for other organizations (see PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE below.) He lectured about dispute resolution at the University of California Santa Barbara, taught Conflict Resolution at the University of Phoenix and Pepperdine graduate school and appears in Marquis’ prestigious Who’s Who in American Law, Who's Who in America, and Who's Who in the World.

Additional Information

No one can, mediate, arbitrate, communicate, solve problems, and find opportunities for mutual gain better than Judge Schulner. With his experience as a Real Estate Broker, businessperson, entrepreneur, manager, attorney, and judge, combined with his training in mediation, as well as his MBA and MDR, he can expertly bridge the gap between differing individuals.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

I want to personally thank you for your great work!
(Immediately after a settlement agreement was reached in mediation, the participants began discussing their next sale of property together. That is not a likely occurrence after a trial!)
BRAD LUSTER, Managing Partner, Major Properties

Keith is particularly skilled because of his depth as an MBA and an MDR and his experience as a Lawyer. Because of Keith’s depth, he has been able to handle complex issues that require years of skill and training. He has demonstrated an ability to help parties communicate better, analyze risks, and explore options for their mutual satisfaction. In the last thirty years at UCSB, I have not seen anyone with Keith’s breadth and depth in being prepared for the hard and complex cases.
GEOFFREY WALLACE PhD, UC, Santa Barbara Ombudsman
 
Thank you for your efforts on the Simpson v. Pierce matter [settled]. We truly appreciated all that you did and I found you to be an excellent mediator. Many mediators do nothing but try to make you uncomfortable with your case by attacking either the attorney, the facts or the law to try to force a settlement. Your services were truly unique in that you were very courteous and respectful to both the parties and counsel and you helped us arrive at a solution without suffering abuse and battery.

Most of all, at least on our side, we had total confidence and trust in what we could tell you and how you would approach the mediation. You are well suited for being a mediator in both approach and personality. I wish you the best of luck. I truly mean this, I was truly surprised. I did not expect you to be as good a mediator as you were. No offense, it is just that I know you do not have a full head of gray hair.
J. GRANT KENNEDY, Law Office of J. Grant Kennedy

I was very impressed with Mr. Schulner’s outstanding mediation skills and his ability to focus all parties on the issues at hand. His experience was evident during our negotiation discussions. Mr. Schulner was able to persuade both the plaintiff attorney and his client to settle this matter in the interest of all parties. Mr. Schulner is an excellent mediator.
BONNIE JACOBS, Claims Specialist, The Doctors’ Company

I wanted to thank you for your most diplomatic handling of an antagonistic situation. You provided a quiet, peaceful, smoke-free, informal setting that was conducive to the exchange of information. You explained everything in a way that a non-legal person like me could understand, yet without “talking down” to me. You maintained your composure throughout. You maintained eye contact as well and did not react emotionally to anything I said. I had the impression that you were listening carefully to our point of view and that you gave the same consideration to the other side with no previous bias. Do I have any suggestions that would make you a better mediator? No, none.
ESTHER NELSON, Professor, Cal State University Northridge
 
I give my highest recommendation to Keith A. Schulner. Mr. Schulner conducts himself with the utmost professionalism. He always prepares thoroughly and speaks articulately; his comments are always carefully thought out. In addition, Mr. Schulner has keen business and analytical skills.
