September 08, 2015
LOS ANGELES – JAMS, the largest private provider of mediation and arbitration services worldwide, today announced the addition of Hon. Margaret A. Nagle (Ret.) to its panel. Judge Nagle will be based in the JAMS Los Angeles Resolution Center and serve as a mediator, arbitrator and special master in a variety of disputes including Business/Commercial, Civil Rights, Employment, Entertainment and Sports, Insurance, Intellectual Property and Personal Injury/Torts disputes.
Judge Nagle joins JAMS after 18 years as United States Magistrate Judge in the high volume Central District of California where she served as a settlement judge and presided over hundreds of diverse matters. Prior to joining the bench, Judge Nagle was a trial lawyer for more than 20 years during which she litigated employment, insurance, product liability, trademark, copyright and business/commercial matters.
Judge Nagle’s experience as a trial lawyer, combined with her bench experience, enables her to relay to parties how a judge or jury will react to a case. Her reputation as an effective settlement judge stems from her ability to settle cases even when dealing with emotionally charged parties and intractable positions. She is evaluative, candid and tough when needed.
“Judge Nagle approaches every matter with preparedness, patience and persistence,” said Chris Poole, JAMS president and CEO. “She joins JAMS with a stellar reputation in the Los Angeles legal community, and we’re thrilled to have her on our panel.”
“I have utilized ADR for years in my courtroom to resolve disputes and am excited to continue doing this important work full-time,” said Judge Nagle. “I also look forward to working alongside the outstanding JAMS panel in Los Angeles.”
Judge Nagle earned her B.A. summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Boston College and earned her J.D. from Columbia University School of Law.
