Traditional mediation and arbitration are not the only tools available through JAMS. In some situations other approaches are more appropriate, effective and/or economical. These options, customized for specific organizations, industries and events, can prevent conflicts before they arise or provide more flexible, scalable and creative resolution paths when conflicts do emerge.

[PODCAST] JAMS Neutrals on Using Mediation to Navigate the Complexities of Family Law Disputes

In this podcast, JAMS neutrals Hon. Grace G. Dickler (Ret.) and Hon. Karen G. Shields (Ret.) explore how the pandemic affected family law disputes, how virtual proceedings provided an avenue to keep cases moving forward and how the transition was received by neutrals, attorneys and parties. The neutrals also take a deep dive on the preparation that aids in resolving family law cases, helpful documents to have and the role that outside experts play in helping to facilitate negotiations between parties. Judge Dickler and Judge Shields offer their thoughts on the timeline for when to bring in a mediator and the complexities that are often involved in these cases. The conversation concludes with a discussion of how mediation can help parties get more involved with the outcome of their case and the prediction that mediation for family law disputes is going to continue to rise in popularity.

Four Observations From My First Year as a JAMS Neutral

I joined JAMS in January 2022, after 25 years as a judge on the Massachusetts Superior Court, including the final six-and-a-half years as chief judge. The transition has been smooth thanks to the excellent training, mentoring and support JAMS provides. Looking back after a year, I offer these four observations, which I believe reflect the cornerstones of resolving disputes.
