Dallas – JAMS, the largest private provider of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services worldwide, is pleased to announce that it was named the top “Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Provider” in Austin, Dallas and Houston in the Texas Lawyer’s annual “Best Of” list. JAMS was also recognized as the top “Online ADR Resource” in Dallas.
The Texas Lawyer ranks the top legal products and service providers each year across several categories based on survey results from attorneys and law firm administrators in Texas.
JAMS has long prioritized making the dispute resolution process accessible for all parties by integrating virtual offerings. As the COVID-19 pandemic required a rapid shift to remote work, JAMS executed a smooth transition to virtual ADR services, ensuring its neutrals and case managers were able to continue to support the needs of the legal community during this challenging time. Further recognizing the need for streamlined online access, JAMS launched JAMS Access in August, which created a secure online case management platform for neutrals, attorneys and case managers to easily access case information.
JAMS, long known for exceptional service, also offers unique benefits to attorneys and their clients resolving disputes through virtual ADR, including neutrals who have resolved hundreds of cases remotely; pre-hearing training and demonstrations on technology and protocols used during virtual dispute resolution; and a skilled remote case management team, including dedicated virtual moderators.
We are proud of the work that our Texas neutrals have carried out this year. The pandemic has ignited a need for adaptable solutions and creativity. This recognition highlights the impressive way our neutrals and staff met the needs of the legal community during a particularly challenging year.
