Since 1979, JAMS has been a destination for many of California’s most respected and accomplished alternative dispute resolution (ADR) practitioners. JAMS California neutrals have played a major role in making us the world’s largest ADR provider and one of the industry’s premier innovators and thought leaders. We expect our latest group of panelists to continue that trend. They include retired judges, former civil litigators, in-house counsel and other ADR professionals with extensive experience handling a wide range of complex and significant cases in California, including intellectual property, technology and AI disputes, construction, health care, employment, insurance, family law and more. JAMS California neutrals serve as mediators, arbitrators, neutral evaluators, discovery referees, special masters and temporary judges. They augment their deep knowledge of California case law and ADR with ongoing training and are adept at conducting seamless in-person and virtual proceedings.
