Philadelphia – JAMS, the largest private provider of alternative dispute resolution services (ADR) worldwide, is pleased to announce that it once again earned the top ranking as the best ADR provider in The Legal Intelligencer’s Best Of survey for the 10th year in a row. In addition, JAMS was also named the best online ADR resource, and two JAMS neutrals—Hon. Diane Welsh (Ret.) and Hon. Annette M. Rizzo (Ret.)—topped the Individual Mediator category. Judge Welsh has placed in the survey’s top two for the last nine years.
It is an honor for JAMS to be recognized by The Legal Intelligencer’s survey for the 10th year in a row. I also am happy to see Judge Welsh and Judge Rizzo acknowledged by the Pennsylvania legal community. Congratulations to them both on receiving these accolades.
