“We are incredibly grateful for Steve’s dedication and hard work.  His mastery of the law combined with his deep understanding of the facts and background of our case enabled him to be two steps ahead of everyone else.  It was reassuring to know that we had not only the best attorney in the room, but also the attorney who had best prepared to represent his clients and get the right result.”

"We could not have asked for anyone better than Steve to represent our position in the difficult international arbitration case that we were involved in. Steve is an extremely dedicated, very thorough professional and will ensure that no stones are left unturned while preparing and representing the case.  He is very quick in understanding the facts, provides detailed analysis and well thought out recommendations for the client to consider while pursuing the case.  He is always accessible even when we were in different time zones half way across the world."

Client of Steven Barentzen

“I am an experienced civil trial attorney (30 years’ experience) who recently had the pleasure of working with Steve Barentzen in a hotly contested, complex litigation. I served as Steve’s local counsel.  I found Steve to be well organized, focused and extremely knowledgeable about the law as well as federal civil procedure.

In addition to Steve’s legal research and writing skills, Steve has an amazing presence in Court.  He is concise, poised and well-prepared.  During several oral arguments before the Court, Steve clearly impressed the judge with his knowledge of the law, facts and ability to respond to the judge’s questions (both on the underlying facts and the law).

I also witnessed the rapport that Steve developed with his clients.  He gave his clients precise reports, outlining his theories for the case and recommendations on how to proceed.  Since I was privy to the communications between Steve and his clients, I can attest to how much his clients appreciated being kept informed, involved and a part of the litigation process.

I highly recommend Steve for civil commercial litigation.”

"Our company has utilized the expertise of Steve Barentzen Law Firm for several years.  Steve has represented us on both federal and commercial litigation as well as contract negotiations.  Steve is a “hands on” attorney.  I’ve always admired his ability to manage every detail without getting bogged down.  He understands the true value of his client’s time and thus, is as focused on keeping his client out of court as he is representing their rights.  But if you have to go to court, there is no one sharper.  The results for our company have been stellar."

Client of Steven Barentzen

"Steve has provided valuable legal counsel to our company for several years.  As an experienced trial attorney, he has deftly represented our company on critical matters that were resolved successfully in mediation rather than costly trials.  He is a skilled negotiator with an empathic nature and exceptional ability to quickly assess the qualities of a legal argument or position, regardless of the subject matter.  He is a closer and follows through consistently and persistently on his commitments."

Client of Steven Barentzen
