Prior to joining JAMS, Judge Dolinger served for more than 30 years as a United States Magistrate Judge in the Southern District of New York.

At the same time, he presided over pretrial and/or trial in thousands of cases of equivalent breadth and complexity.

Judge Dolinger brings a deep and varied background to his practice at JAMS. He handles each matter with the patience, sensitivity and creativity needed to successfully resolve it. We’re thrilled to have him join our panel in New York.

I am delighted to join a very talented group of JAMS panelists. Assisting parties to reach a consensual resolution of their disputes is often challenging and is always a boon to the judicial system. I look forward to that challenge.
