New Panelist Announcement

Minneapolis – JAMS, the largest private provider of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services, is pleased to announce the addition of Daniel H. Mabley to its panel. Judge Mabley joins JAMS following 26 years of distinguished service as a Hennepin County (Minnesota) District Court judge, including a term as chief judge, and another 15 years in prosecuting attorney roles in Dakota, Hennepin and Ramsey counties.

Judge Mabley will be based in the JAMS Resolution Center in Minneapolis and will serve as a mediator, arbitrator, special master, settlement master/ombudsman and discovery referee in a wide variety of disputes, including business/commercial, construction defect, family law, personal injury/torts and professional liability.

Judge Mabley is known for his keen ability to understand both sides of complex cases. We are looking forward to having him join our well-respected panel of neutrals in Minnesota.

During his time on the bench, Judge Mabley handled assignments to both the civil and family divisions. In the civil division, he adjudicated a wide variety of matters, including disputes involving business, contracts, construction defects, personal injury, professional malpractice, FELA, clergy sexual abuse, environmental issues, insurance and employment. In the family division, he handled child custody matters and property disputes.

I have gained a wide variety of experience that will lend itself well to this new chapter in my career. I’m looking forward to applying those skills at JAMS to help parties resolve disputes successfully.
