I have retained Ms. Martin for translation and interpretation services in numerous high stake lawsuits, ranging from commercial cases in the Complex Litigation Department of California State Court, to hi-tech patent infringement action in the federal district court, and Section 337 investigation in the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC). My clients and I have always appreciated her superb language skills, high-standard professionalism and warm personality and will recommend her services to anyone in need without reservations.

Tony D. Chen Esq. and Partner at Chen Yoshimura LLP (Former Partner at Bingham McCutchen LLP)

I had the opportunity to spend a full day teaching executives from Beijing Television Network at UCLA. Lingling was the interpreter. To say that I was awed by her skills as an interpreter is an understatement. Lingling understood all the nuances of what I was trying to communicate and by the questions coming back at me from the executives I knew my words were being completely understood, even my sense of humor! Beyond her skill as an interpreter, Lingling brought a level of commitment which added to my credibility. By that I mean she helped me shape some of my thoughts so the audience could Continue Reading

Garrett Hart Former President, Paramount Network Television

Ms. Martin, I want to thank you again for your excellent work as program interpreter for our International Management Seminars. When translation is the key contact between our professors and clients, we have no room for errors or misinterpretations. That is why we have used your services for the last few years…faultless, accurate, fast, and sensible translation…all given with a most pleasant smile as well. Thanks again.

Professor Robert S. Spich Faculty Program Director, International Management Seminars, UCLA CIBER

Lingling Martin has provided outstanding service to our law firm and its clients. Ms. Martin’s simultaneous translation skills are excellent. She works hard, understands complex cases and documents, and is helpful, professional, and discreet. Ms. Martin has earned the trust of our firm’s clients, opposing counsel, and judges. We have recommended Ms. Martin to a number of lawyers at global law firms. All of them have been extremely satisfied and impressed with Ms. Martin’s skills, services, and demeanor.

Robert L. Corbin Esq. and Partner at Corbin, Fitzgerald & Athey LLP

We retained Ms. Martin to evaluate and assist us in attacking the quality of transcriptions and translations done by the plaintiff in a highly contentious lawsuit over the value of those translations. The other side had retained their own expert. Ms. Martin provided invaluable insight into not only the errors in the original transcriptions and translations, but the errors in the other side’s expert’s opinions as well. Needless to say, we won. Afterwards, I interviewed the jury to determine whether or not they had a difficult time in determining which expert to believe. The overwhelming response was that Ms. Martin sealed the deal – she Continue Reading

John G. H. Davis Partner and Shareholder at Brown Sims, P.C

There is no other service that we would use than Ko & Martin Certified Interpreters. Lingling and Soomi are, without a doubt, the best in the business. We use them whenever we have a case needing Chinese or Korean translation services — they are smart, helpful, professional, and immediately put our clients and witnesses needing their services at ease. They have been a huge part of our trial successes — and it is no coincidence that when we use them, we obtain a record verdict. You can’t convince a jury if they don’t get the client’s story. Using these amazing translators ensures that even if your client or witnesses do not speak English, the jury will understand every facet and emotion of the story of the case.

Deborah Chang, Esq. at Panish Shea & Boyle LLP, 11111 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90025. Tel:310-477-1700. chang@psblaw.com

I have worked with Lingling for many years. I first met Lingling when we were both court interpreters working on the same case in court. I was impressed with the quality of her interpretation. After I passed the bar and became an attorney, I continued to employ Lingling as an interpreter for many of my cases. I worked with many interpreters and Lingling is one of the most competent and conscientious Mandarin/Chinese interpreters I know. I have recommended and will continue to recommend Lingling to anyone who is in need of a Mandarin/Chinese interpreter.

Aster C. Chang Esq., Wasserman, Comden, Casselman & Esensten LLP

I have worked with LingLing Martin in court, depositions, and translation of documents. She is a true professional and it is a pleasure to work with her. Her services are excellent and timely and her court certification is important in introducing translated documents into evidence. I have recommended her to many of my colleagues and will continue to do so in the future.

Bruce Friedman Partner at Bingham McCutchen LLP

Lingling is a well qualified interpreter and provided great support for this firm’s litigation proceedings.

Steve Qi CEO at Law Office of Steve Qi & Associates

I have been a court reporter for over 20 years and I have never been as impressed with an interpreter as I have been with Lingling. It’s difficult for us court reporters to do our job with English speaking people, but when an interpreter is added to the mix, it makes it much more difficult having to listen simultaneously to two voices in two languages. Plus, many interpreters I have worked with need an interpreter themselves!!! Lingling’s ability to do her job so proficiently has sure made me doing my job soooooooo much easier. To be more succinct, she is absolutely brilliant at her job Continue Reading

Karyn Williams Court Reporter at Buker & Assoc. Court Reporters, Inc.

Lingling acted as a check interpreter for us in a legal deposition proceeding. She was zealous representing our client’s interest. She also conducted herself professionally and ethically.

Hua Chen Esq., Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker LLP

I highly recommend Ms. Martin as a Mandarin interpreter. As an attorney, I have used several interpreters for court and deposition testimony, but her quick and accurate interpretations allow testimony to proceed smoothly and efficiently. Even the judges are pleased with her work.

Robert Gentino Esq. and Owner, Law Office of Robert Gentino

Lost in translation may be a good movie, but it is not something that can be allowed in the legal field when so much is at stake. I first met Lingling Martin through NAPABA. Since then, I have relied on her professional translation service for a few complex litigation cases. Lingling is consistent and reliable; her work is done with high accuracy and with detailed knowledge of the Mandarin and English languages. As I am fluent in Mandarin as well, I am able to fully appreciate the deep level of expertise Lingling has for translating between the two languages. I have always been thoroughly impressed Continue Reading

Danny Chen Attorney at Green Maple Law Group

I’ve hired Lingling twice as a Chinese interpreter for media and customers. She is always a pleasure to work with and has been highly professional and reliable. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a Mandarin Chinese interpreter.

Cecilia Daclan Group Manager, Consumer Public Relations, Symantec Corporation

All of my staff enjoys working with Lingling Martin. Excellent work at a reasonable cost. High integrity—consistent and reliable. We are a repeat customer because we do not have to worry.

Wei C. Wong Attorney at Law

LingLing served as simultaneous interpreter for a day long seminar last year which I taught at UCLA to a visiting group from China. Her language skills were impeccable; she worked seamlessly with me; her understanding of technical/business/financial terms was excellent, and she was always personable and pleasant. I would say she is the best interpreter with whom I have ever worked.

Mark E. Buchman President at PacRim Financial Consultants

Lingling’s professional approach and performance during her interpretation of a very technical and difficult live presentation at IMAPS was second to none. Her self initiative in learning the technical jargon and reviewing ahead of time with the presenters was critically important to ensuring the event went smoothly as planned. I would highly recommend her for anyone who might need a Mandarin Interpreter.

Randy Klein Supply Chain & Facilities Manager, Heraeus Holding GmbH

Lingling Martin was the interpreter in a settlement conference in which it was important for both sides to convey not just words, but also intent and sincerity in order to establish trust. Accordingly, we sought an interpreter who was personable, mature and understood and could convey subtle nuance. Ms. Martin understood what was needed by both sides and was invaluable in helping resolve our dispute. She is an accomplished interpreter, and also professional, reliable and pleasant. I recommend her without reservation.

James W. Hunt Partner, Fitzpatrick & Hunt, Tucker, Collier, Pagano, Aubert, LLP

I have retained Lingling Martin & Associates more than once and have been thoroughly satisfied with their performance. Lingling and her translation associates are professional, personable and reliable.

David Habib Attorney at Law Office of David J. Habib

Lingling is poised, polite, professional, and has a remarkable memory. She is at the top of my list when it comes to translation/interpreter support. You won’t be disappointed.

Don Skeoch Chief Marketing Officer, Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board

Ms. Martin, again, many thanks for a job well done. You have a marvelous ability to quickly and accurately interpret and translate. This is a complex commercial case, but at no time was there any slow-down or fumbling to find exactly the right translated word. Often translated depositions are slow and disjointed, but yours was totally seamless. Many thanks and my best regards!

Herbert H. Gray, III, Attorney-at-Law, Partner at Ragsdale, Beals, Seigler, Patterson & Gray, LLP

In September, 2009, Lingling Martin did a very good job of simultaneous interpretation for a Los Angeles Superior Court trial lasting over a week in which I represented one side. There were Chinese speakers who in all likelihood would have noticed errors or omissions in translation on her part, but, to the best of my memory, virtually no such errors or omissions were ever drawn to my attention. I recommend her.

Ross Heckmann Ross S. Heckmann, Attorney at Law

It has been my good fortune to have known and worked with Lingling many times since 2004. Lingling is not only a highly competent and committed professional interpreter, she is also a genuinely nice person and a good friend. I have been close enough to Lingling to have seen her in action both as a mother and as a daughter and she has inspired me with her many great qualities. She is passionate about her profession and treats everyone with respect. I highly recommend Lingling without reservation.
