New York – JAMS, the largest private provider of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services worldwide, is pleased to announce the addition of Hon. L. Priscilla Hall (Ret.) to its panel. Justice Hall brings more than 30 years of experience on the bench, having served New York State with distinction. She served as an associate justice of the State of New York Appellate Division, Second Judicial Department, for nine years. Prior to this, she served as the administrative judge of the Criminal Division of the Kings County Supreme Court.
Twice elected as a justice to the Supreme Court of the State of New York, Justice Hall presided over civil and criminal matters and volunteered to serve in Family Court during 2006. Her diverse career has spanned the fields of law, public service and community service as a means to maintain the public’s confidence in our judicial system. She has experience in multiple spheres, having served as a corporate attorney for General Electric, an assistant district attorney in New York County, inspector general of the New York State Department of Employment, assistant attorney general at the New York City Department of Employment and inspector general of the New York City Human Resources Administration.
Based in the New York Resolution Center, Justice Hall will serve as an arbitrator, mediator, special master/referee and facilitator, handling disputes in business and commercial, civil rights, mass torts, construction, education, employment, government and public agency, insurance, banking, personal injury and torts, real property and securities. She is available to conduct sessions in person (adhering to reopening guidelines) as well as virtually for attorneys and their clients across the country.
Justice Hall is highly respected for her commitment to public service and is dedicated to helping her community. She has presided over thousands of cases during her time on the bench, and the experience she has gained will be instrumental in her transition to becoming a panelist at JAMS.
- Chris Poole, JAMS CEO
Throughout her career, Justice Hall has been a leader in civic and community organizations and associations, and she is frequently invited to speak about justice and inclusion. She has served as president of the New York State Association of Women Justices, vice-president of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, chair of the board of directors of the Metropolitan Black Bar Association and president of the Association of Black Women Attorneys. Most recently, she was appointed to serve on the New York City Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Judiciary.
I’ve learned the importance of listening and understanding all of the facts and elements of every single case that’s come before me. After more than three decades on the bench, I am looking forward to applying my skills and knowledge to helping parties resolve their disputes with mediation and arbitration.
- Hon. L. Priscilla Hall (Ret.)
Justice Hall received her B.A, magna cum laude, from Howard University; her M.S., with honors, from Columbia School of Journalism; and her J.D. from Columbia University School of Law.
