Jonathan Brenner, Esq. has over 20 years of experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in a wide-range of practice areas including, but not limited to: personal injury, employment and business/commercial matters. In 1992, Mr. Brenner started his dispute resolution practice as a member of the San Diego Superior Court's arbitration panel while also conducting settlement conferences. Shortly thereafter, he discovered a true talent and passion for mediation. Soon after, Mr. Brenner became one of San Diego County's most requested neutrals. Clients often comment on his no-nonsense approach and ability to get cases settled expeditiously. One client stated, "Jonathan doesn't waste any time; he's professional, personable and savvy, a true class act." Another client commented, "Jonathan's background as a litigator on both the plaintiff and defendant side is invaluable in getting parties in a mediation to listen and be flexible. Every case that I have mediated with him so far has settled."
In his spare time, Mr. Brenner enjoys martial arts, weight lifting and spending time with his family.
Thanks for your good–hard work. Going in, with the cast of characters, I did not think it was going to get done.
